UMKC Gallery of Art presents Re:Print, a new exhibition featuring an amazing array of prints by Hand Print Press. In 2019, Hand Print Press marks their quarter century partnership with The University of Missouri-Kansas City and their professional explorations in printmaking. To commemorate this anniversary, Hand Print Press decided to revisit and reflect on their artistic output and to use their collective past to start their future.

For the exhibit “RE:Prints”, members both past and present were invited to search through HPP’s archived portfolios to find images to inspire new prints. Whether it was to pay homage to, riff on, or have a dialogue with the archived prints, members were given free rein to use any printmaking technique(s) to interpret their inspirational print. The result is a remarkable exhibit which shows the wide range of subject matter, unique processes and brilliant techniques that are under the umbrella of printmaking.

The Exhibition runs from September 5th through October 18th, 2019. Opening Reception on September 5th from 5-7pm.

The UMKC Gallery of Art is located in the Fine Arts Building, room 203 (5015 Holmes Street).
