Exhibition Dates: March 31, 2015 – May 20, 2016
Please join us for SIGHTINGS, an exhibition featuring a new collection of prints developed from eyewitness accounts of unexplained beings. This exhibition coincides with the Southern Graphics Council International Printmaking Conference: Flux: The Edge of Yesterday and Tomorrow
Organized by AJ Nordhagen and Brittany Kieler, SIGHTINGS includes works from thirty artists who have each contributed a single piece illustrating personal or historically documented experiences with cryptids, ghosts, extraterrestrials, and other scientifically unexplained entities.
SIGHTINGS celebrates the pursuit of defining the non-human world and is informed by contemporary cryptozoological, extraterrestrial, ufological, and paranormal research. The project addresses the unknown as the realm of infinite possibility, unfolding in a vast landscape not easily accessed by humans. It is in part the human inability to research, to control, to domesticate, to know these entities, despite their close and constant proximity, that drives SIGHTINGS.
The medium of printmaking, with its origins in the dissemination of information (particularly zoological and scientific), has a unique ability to capture the physical and psychological ephemera that compose the research of mysterious beings.
