Date & Time
"Presented by Southampton Arts Center and Inspiration Plus, this momentous event will feature giants in modern and contemporary art, along with talented artists from all over the world. Both exhibitions, the brainchildren of Sag Harbor artist and master printmaker Dan Welden, combine to create a milestone event that brings printmaking to the forefront of art.
The SOLAR IMPRESSIONS juried exhibition, featuring works created by means of the scientific breakthrough of light sensitive plates, is sponsored by Inspiration Plus Foundation, a 501 c-3 non profit organization dedicated to creating art that celebrates and educates through science. Over one hundred impressions were selected from more than 700 entries from across the United States, Ireland, Israel, England, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, Peru, Canada, Spain, and France. The esteemed jury consisted of Laura Einstein, manager of the Mezzanine Gallery at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Alex Ferrone, owner/director of the Alex Ferrone Gallery in Cutchogue, NY; and Ron Pokrasso, Santa Fe artist and world printmaking traveler. The awards juror is the acclaimed international artist Eric Fischl, who will be presenting 40 individual awards worth over $28,000 to the numerous works.
Noteworthy are the health, safety, and environmental factors involved in the use of light sensitive plates, constituting the scientific side of the show’s theme: All images showcased were processed with sunlight (or UV light) and ordinary tap water to harden and etch the light sensitized steel backed polymer plates. No acids or hazardous chemicals needed to be used for this technique."
