KC PRINTS: Printmakers of the Region
October 6 - December 2, 2022

The Carter Art Center Gallery is pleased to announce KC PRINTS: Printmakers of the Region, which is an exhibition of contemporary studio and commercial print works. Expect to see innovative and challenging works that expand process and materials and present printmaking as a versatile and adaptable medium.

We've invited artists within the Kansas City region who are pushing the boundaries of printing/printmaking method and materials both traditionally and commercially. The works of these artists and designers speak to contemporary themes and audiences and include lithographs, screen prints, relief prints, intaglio prints, monoprints, and letterpress.

Carter Art CenterAbout Carter Art Center

The Carter Center for Visual Arts and Imaging Technology (also known as the Carter Art Center)

Graphic design and art have always been stand-out programs at MCC-Penn Valley. In March 2003, Penn Valley dedicated the 25,000 square foot Carter Art Center which provides state-of-the-art computer labs, lecture hall, fine art studio spaces and gallery.

Each year hundreds of students in the Kansas City region take day and evening classes in the graphic arts, studio arts and art history, preparing for transfer to baccalaureate programs or immediately to professional practice. Students benefit from study with MCC faculty who are skilled and prolific in their respective fields.

The gallery provides a gathering place for community and students to celebrate and enjoy the visual arts, featuring exhibits that educate, challenge and inspire through a wide variety of media, techniques and artists. On the lawn outside of the Carter Art Center, you'll find a stainless steel sculpture by Rita Blitt, "Black Box VII: Aspects of Nature II." Even more artifacts of a permanent collection can be found in Anna's Room and throughout the entire building.

We encourage you to join the Friends of the Carter Art Center and help provide financial and community support so the college can continue to grow through its quality art exhibits, scholarships and opportunities for arts education. Several students each year benefit from the gift and scholarship support. "Friends" get VIP access to exhibit previews.

The Carter Art Center reviews proposals for exhibitions on a yearly cycle. Group and solo exhibitions are possible and all media are considered. Exhibiting artists are encouraged to give public talks and/or critiques for students. Interested artists can contact the Gallery Director regarding exhibition prospects.
