Hot and Cold: Abstract Prints from Center Street Studio

March 15 - April 20

Simmons University presents “Hot and Cold: Abstract Prints from Center Street Studio,” from March 15 – April 20, 2007 at the Trustman Art Gallery, fourth floor, Main College Building, 300 The Fenway.

There will be a reception at the gallery featuring the founder of Center Street Studio and master printer, James Stroud, on Thursday, March 22, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Also in attendance will be the recently appointed director of the Trustman Art Gallery, Barbara O’Brien. The exhibit was organized, curated and installed by seniors in the Arts Administration program at Simmons University. The gallery is free and open to the public.

“Hot and Cold” features abstract prints published by the Center Street Studio, of seven artists: Markus Linnenbrink, Carrie Moyer, James Ovid Mustin III, David Ortins, James Stroud, Roger Tibbets, and Bill Wheelock.

The installation juxtaposes “hot,” or existential and expressive prints that often manipulate gesture, form, color, and texture, with “cold” or utopian prints that focus on basic elements such as line and planes. Such juxtaposition creates a dialogue regarding the printmaking process and the various styles and techniques that different artists employ. The group exhibition illustrates a variety of styles and techniques that range from spit bite etchings to graffiti prints, and features established, as well as emerging, local and international artists.

Trustman Art Gallery hours are 10 AM – 4:30 PM, Monday, Tuesday, and Friday, 10 AM – 7 PM on Wednesday and Thursday. The gallery is free, open to the public and wheelchair accessible. For more information, contact Kyle Mendelsohn at (617) 521-2268 or find us on Instagram.
