Description

Mark Lunning’s Open Press Ltd. has quietly been spreading the gospel of printmaking in the Baker neighborhood for 25 years, which is pretty remarkable in an environment where galleries and studios can come and go in the blink of an eye. During that quarter-century of overseeing pull after pull of etchings, intaglio, monotypes, woodcuts and silkscreens, Lunning has almost single-handedly kept the art and craft of fine-art printmaking alive in the local art community, as a mentor, artist and master printer. How many artists have passed through the studio’s open doors? Hard to tell, but more than 25 of them banded together to show their work in the Open Press 25th Anniversary Exhibit, which opened at the McNichols Building in January.

Tonight, as an official kickoff to Mo’Print — printmaking’s biennial equivalent of the Month of Photography that took over local galleries last spring — Lunning and friends will host a free artists’ reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at McNichols, 144 West Colfax Avenue; the anniversary show continues through April 12. Most of the other multiple Mo’Print exhibitions and events will unfold beginning in March; for a complete schedule, visit moprint.org.
