Carbondale Community Arts is excited to host the second Four Rivers Print Biennial. This juried exhibit of prints by artists from across the U.S., will be exhibited at Artspace 304 through March 23. Presented by the SIUC registered student organization “Southern Illinois Printworks,” the group curated and installed the fine art prints selected by Lisa Bulawsky, Professor, Printmaking Area Coordinator, and Director of Island Press in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis.
Southern Illinois is located in the heart of the largest watershed in the contiguous United States. Bordered by the Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, and Wabash rivers, it is also surrounded by regions rich with the traditions of fine art printmaking. Much like the convergence of waterways, the Four Rivers Print Biennial is the confluence of contemporary prints by artists from across the country. The exhibition was founded by Travis Janssen, Assistant Professor of Printmaking in the School of Art & Design at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
