Space Gallery, a non-profit contemporary art space in Portland, Maine, is hosting an exhibition by the Cannonball Press, February 4th through March 24th, 2011. From the Space Gallery website:
Cannonball Press is run by Martin Mazorra and Mike Houston. Based in Brooklyn, NY, they’ve been publishing relief cuts and screenprints since 1999, selling them for $20 each. Around 2004, in addition to publishing, they started to make large-scale collaborative woodcut prints, sculptures and installations. Their work has taken them to Estonia, South Africa, Maui, Germany, Denmark, and numerous U.S. cities. In 2009 Mike and Martin were named US Artists Ford Fellows. They aim to make good prints people can enjoy and afford, adding some small chapter to the rich history of printing (namely, the scruffy black and musky-pirated hillbilly chapter).
The show will feature a huge new pile of limited-edition $20 prints by the likes of Dusty Herbig, Angela Earley, Drew Iwaniw, Sarah Nicholls, Tyler Krasowski, and Donna Diamond.
The gallery is open Wednesday – Saturday, 12:00 – 6:00 PM.
