A contemporary review of fine art printmaking in all media from around the world, presented as a joint project and traveling exhibition by the Purdue University Galleries and the Wright State University Art Galleries in Dayton, Ohio.

Artwork was selected by a curatorial team consisting of Kathryn Reeves, Professor of Art & Design at Purdue; Kimberly Vito, Associate Professor of Art & Art History at Wright State; and Craig Martin, Director of the Purdue Galleries. With over 1500 images submitted by more than 300 artists from 33 countries, the selection process forced many difficult choices. Overall, the work demonstrated a widely diverse use of imagery and both ancient and modern techniques.

The resulting exhibit will feature a total of 78 works representing 67 individual artists from 19 countries around the world.

After showing at Purdue and Wright State, the exhibit is scheduled to tour to various locations in the US throughout 2003 and into 2004. The traveling schedule currently includes stops at the Blanden Memorial Art Museum in Fort Dodge, Iowa; the Sarah Moody Gallery at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa; the Higgins Art Gallery at Cape Cod Community College in W. Barnstable, Massachusetts; the Clara M. Eagle Gallery at Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky; as well as other potential venues.
