Below are magnet prints cut up from test prints for an event at the 2014 SGCI Conference in San Francisco.
“Pint n Print was developed to operate at a point of intersection between three great print traditions: the European mini-print, The Print Exchange, and hanging out at dive bars during print conferences. The organizers hope to create a temporary utopian zone where creative artists can engage in a meaningful conversation about the state of the fine art print, within the aesthetic structure of a mini-print exhibition/exchange inside of a historic San Francisco café & bar. Sweeties, a long established local establishment with a reputation for a welcoming quiet atmosphere is the perfect local counterpoint to the international conference discourse. The Mini-prints will be on display and also available as a gift to any viewers who purchase a meal or beverage during a set period of time. We offer this as a gesture toward solidarity with our local host and the larger SF community, and as means to put artwork from around the country into circulation within the print community through a simple exchange. We hope these tiny prints will leave this one night event sowing connections made over conversation, beer and a snack.” FROM THE SGCI WEBSITE
