PETERBOROUGH, NH --- Extraordinary prints from more than 30 artists highlight Sharon Arts' informative printmaking show Peterborough, NH- - - Sharon Arts Center announces Recent Editions, an exhibit of innovative prints by 30 New York artists working in a variety of genres plus insights into the printmaking process at the Center's Downtown Galleries, 30 Grove Street, Peterborough, NH. The show will run from March 5 - May 3rd, with an Opening Reception on Friday, March 5th from 5-7 pm.

While some of the artists on display in this exhibit had previous experience with printmaking, for most it was their first opportunity to collaborate with a printer. Painters, sculptors and photographers were brought together by New York City's Forth Estate and Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop to team up with a master printmaker to translate their artistic processes and ideas into editioned works that expand and enhance their body of work.

Also on display as part of the exhibit are printmaking process materials including printing plates, blocks and progressions, providing a unique behind-the-scenes look at how prints are produced.

Exhibiting artists include: Glen Baldridge, Ian Cooper, Björn Copeland, Elizabeth Deasy, Alex Dodge, Elise Ferguson, Joseph Hart, Butt Johnson, Andrew Kuo, Eddie Martinez, Milton Rosa-Ortiz, Phil Sanders, Suzanne Song, Ruby Sky Stiler, Ryan Wallace, Will Yackulic, Kevin Zucker, Todd Anderson, Chakaia Booker, Enrique Chagoya, Mike Houston/Cannonball Press, Steve Johnson, Michael Krueger, José Antonio Suárez Londoño, Beauvais Lyons, Martin Mazorra, Cannonball Press, Robert Mueller, Chunwoo Nam, Jenny Schmid, Tom Spleth, and Chris Uphues.
