Border Crossings
A Juried Exhibition
November 4
, 2005 - January 17, 2006

Border Crossings is an international invitational exhibition which asks artists to comment on the making and the transgression of boundaries. Borders, whether visible or invisible, configure community and can be defined in terms of geography, politics, culture and society.

Art work may include conventional and mixed-media printmaking, as well as book arts and digitally manipulated images. Photographs, including digital photographs, will be excluded.

Founded in 1999, The Ink Shop Printmaking Center/Olive Branch Press is a non-profit print and bookmakers’ center, fine art press and gallery which offers professional facilities for the making of fine art prints and artists’ books. The Ink Shop provides equipment for intaglio, lithography, silkscreen, letter press, digital imaging, and bookmaking in addition to an extensive series of year-round workshops for artists and the general public. We host six exhibits per year in the gallery, including invitational and exchange exhibitions, one full-year Kahn family fellowship and a one-month artist in residence program. The Olive Branch Press prints editions and handmade books. Border Crossings will take place in The Ink Shop‘s three exhibition galleries.
