These days we are consuming an overwhelming amount of images through a computer or cellphone screen. Reality is becoming digitized as our experience with the world at large is increasingly filtered through technology. It is all starting to sound like any dystopic sci-fi novel about the future that you read as a teenager.

We here at Cinders want to remind you to get away from the computer and check out a group of artists who are still getting dirty and making things.

Dirty Fingers is a large group exhibition focusing on various forms of printmaking which include silk-screening, etching, stenciling, stamp and woodblock printing. The immediacy and accessibility of printmaking creates a medium that can be produced in multiples and sold affordably. The process of hand-printing also adds the distinction of the human hand at work, revealing its slight imperfections and laborious effort in the final piece.

Join us for a showcase of our favorite print makers from around the world.

The gallery will be open Saturday and Sunday, 1 -7pm and by appointment:

Prints from the exhibition are available online HERE

Special events will be happening throughout the duration of the exhibition so stay tuned!
