528.0: Regional Juried Printmaking Exhibition

Join us for a massive showcase of all things PRINT! This juried call for artwork was open to artists living in a 528-mile radius of Denver, Colorado. The number 528.0 refers to Denver’s altitude and status as the Mile High City (5,280 feet). 

Printers from across the region submitted 553 artworks across all forms of printmaking. Jurors Emily Grace King (Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, Arvada, CO), Jennifer Lynch (Lynch Pin Press, Santa Fe, NM), and Howard Paine (University of Nebraska, Omaha) selected 83 works to celebrate the expansive diversity of contemporary printmaking found within the Western Region. This exhibition is in partnership with Denver’s Month of Printmaking (March 2024).

Sue Oehme Inclusions

This solo exhibition features Master Printer Sue Oehme’s own creative print-based work. Featuring her signature colorful large installations and monoprints, Oehme utilizes everyday recycled objects within her print process to create complex, multi-layered images that are strangely and vaguely reminiscent of hints of life in our super-charged, consumer-based, politicized culture.

Wendy Kowynia: Following the Thread

Wheat Ridge High School graduate Wendy Kowynia explores line and form through the use of thread and a loom, weaving intricate fiber works that are uniquely folded and manipulated. Kowynia’s textiles are created using specialized Japanese yarns of linen, paper, and silk, and are colored using natural dyes like indigo, sumi ink, walnut ink, and soymilk. After carefully laying each thread in delicate lines, Kowzyina bends the textile into gossamery structures that are both strong and elegant.
