‘Texture of Being’

Why: This is an exhibition of 12 artists working in woodcut and linocut, curated by Seattle print nut/Print Zero Studios head Brian Lane, at a gallery that specializes in prints (particularly Japanese woodcuts)—and if you are not already in love with this art form, here you will fall. The thematic range is broad, from a rough woodcut self-portrait of an artist just after he left a mental institution to dated mappings of where and when gay marriage is legal in the United States (that series is Sometimes I’m Married). Two long scrolls hang from the ceiling like incandescent skins, printed with patterns that look like body parts floating apart, or back together again. These prints are alive.
