Breathing Space

April 3 – 30, 2015

Catherine Kernan’s imagery is rooted in nature. Combining printmaking and painting through the means of abstraction, she develops a visual code that balances rhythm and texture, a sense of order and chaos, or as Kernan puts it, embodies “the control and serendipity of life itself.”

reThink INK: 25 Years at Mixit Print Studio

April 11 – July 31, 2012

For twenty-five years Mixit Print Studio has served as one of Boston's premier intellectual and artistic printmaking communities. Although we each explore our unique ideas, we interact and collaborate in countless ways. Because we share space, presses, and equipment, we encounter ways of generating, and executing ideas that would not happen in our own studios. Cross-fertilization is the hallmark of a collaborative print studio such as ours. Artists come to find aesthetic nourishment, technical exchange, critical feedback and the resources to realize their art projects. They leave with the indelible experience of having worked in a cooperative studio.

Mixit Print Studio was established in 1987 as a direct outgrowth of Artist's Proof Studio, a four-partner printmaking cooperative in Cambridge, Massachusetts (1980-84). The original partners, Jane Goldman and Catherine Kernan, were joined in 2010 by third partner Randy Garber.

reThink INK is an unprecedented showing of large scale and dimensional printmaking, as well as work from Boston area artist printmakers using a wide range of techniques and concepts.

Coming of Age Exhibition:

21 years of APS @JAG

April – June 2012

Artist Proof Studio was founded as a community-based printmaking studio in 1991 by Kim Berman and the late Nhlanhla Xaba. Over the past twenty years, Artist Proof Studio has trained two generations of artists who would have had otherwise little access to professional education in printmaking, many of whom have been recognized as among South Africa's most important young talents.

Time and Again
New Monoprints by Catherine Kernan

Opening First Friday, November 1, 2019

Time and Again takes a narrative stance using a visual vocabulary of fragmentation, interruption, and reflection. Underlying the work is the premise that human relationships with the earth are dynamic, reciprocal, and move in ever-evolving cycles of repetition and variation.

AfterImages: New Woodcut Monoprints

March 1 – March 30, 2013

A series of woodcut monoprints about memory reconstruction and visual perception, these works are large in scale and rich with complex overlays. Working at the interface between printmaking and painting, Kernan uses woodblocks in unorthodox ways to build images layer by layer in a painterly process of controlled accident.
