SIGHTINGS

Organized by AJ Nordhagen and Brittany Kieler (of HOLODROME and Vulture Woman Press, respectively), “Sightings” includes 30 prints from artists all over the country, each asking the viewer to delve into the unknown.

“SIGHTINGS is an illustrated collection of images developed from eyewitness accounts of unexplained beings. Thirty artists contribute personal or historically documented experiences with cryptids, ghosts, extraterrestrials, and other mysterious entities. It is presented in a box set of editioned fine art prints and includes a field guide with laser-etched cover. Honoring visual traditions across the globe that illuminate the human relationship with these entities, SIGHTINGS asks the viewer to reconsider the breadth of science, continually expanding our way of knowing the world.”

DESERT TRIANGLE

We first saw this incredible portfolio in Portland at this past year’s Southern Graphics Council conference.  Organized by Krrrl, the portfolio includes 22×30” works by 30 artists who teamed up with local printshops in the southwest and Mexico to produce the editions. They have a great blog that includes images of the prints as well as process photos, essays, and more. We are very honored to show these works in Chicago–we were blown away and we think you will be, too!
