Printmakers…Bemis Carver Bank…Bay

The Hot Shops Art Center is featuring “Pulled From the Matrix”, prints and the matrix from which they’re made, through November 23. Printmaker Amy Haney originated the idea. Lori Elliot-Bartle, Julie Sopscak, and Judy Haney assisted in the process of curating, promotion, and installation. The 23 printmakers featured at the Hot Shops Gallery used a variety of matrices including traditional wood block, doilies dipped in clay, computer generated objects printed with a 3-D printer and more. Haney’s inclusion of a glossary of terms of tools and processes adds to the magic. Hours: weekdays 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., weekends 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  1301 Nicholas St. Omaha. www.hotshopsartcenter.com/ http://amyhaney.typepad.com/

The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, and The Rebuild Foundation, along with Theaster Gates invite applications for their joint Artist-in-Residence Program beginning January 2013.
