Last year's show

APRIL 2003

JOAN GRONA GALLERY

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS

v A HISTORY OF THE SHOW

    StoneMetal Pressprovide education in fine art printmaking and the facilities for artists to create their own hand-pulled prints.

    Hand-Pulled Prints XI is a competitive juried show held to support the efforts of individuals creating artist produced prints and the mission of StoneMetal Press.

   Le Green and Kathleen Baker Pittman, founders of StoneMetal Press, had a desire to share their love of contemporary prints. This desire resulted in a cooperative, nonprofit print studio and an international print competition, Hand-Pulled Prints. The current competitions will be StoneMetal Press’ eleventh annual print competition.

    This show focuses national attention on San Antonio as well as reaching an ever increasing local audience. The show attracts print collectors interested in acquiring contemporary prints.

    Charles Heasley, juror of Hand-Pulled Prints II, stated “In this exhibition, works from a wide variety of artists and locals, make statements which both follow tradition and break rules. Here the traditional syntax of the print is contrasted to the current trends in the media.”

      Dan Goddard, art critic for the San Antonio Express News, stated in his review of the 2001 show “If variety is the spice of life, then Hand-Pulled Prints VIII is one spicy show…and one of the best print shows this year”.
