"Horizons" is comprised of 35 works by 16 artist members of the center. It explores representations of horizons, both physical and perceptual. The exhibit gives the center’s member artists an opportunity to showcase their work internationally at world-renowned printmaking facilities.

"This exhibition provides an ideal opportunity for our member artists to exhibit their works in two extraordinary printmaking venues overseas," said Executive Director Laura Einstein.

The center has a growing international presence, and this is another chance for members to have their work shown around the globe. In 2014, works were displayed as part of the Pendle International Print Festival, in conjunction with the Heritage Centre Gallery in Pendle, England.

The show will be exhibited at the Cork Printmakers at the Quay Gallery in Cork, Ireland, and then will travel to Fyns Grafiske Vaerksted in Odense, Denmark.

"Horizons" was juried by Faye Hirsch, who is a writer, editor and teacher who has published widely on contemporary art.

"The works in this exhibition cover a wide range of influences and habits," Hirsch said. "These 16 artists look beyond the colony -- beyond the niceties of craft and the border-hemmed province of printmaking -- as they balance between the seductions of their medium and a larger practice that offers authentic expression its full outlet."

"I am honored to have my work chosen by this juror and am particularly excited to be part of this international traveling exhibition," said Christine Aaron, one of those selected artists.
