Detroit Artists Market
Detroit, MI
Group Exhibitions

Through the work of six artists creating in print, this exhibition seeks to reveal 19th century romantic landscape tradition of Northern Europe as the origin of modern abstraction, a premise set forth in the early 1970s essays by renowned American art historian  and professor, Robert Rosenblum (1927-2006). The artists in this exhibition explore memory, the sublime, deity, transformation, revival, intimations of mortality, as well as ideas about nationality, displacement and reconciliation. Curated by Endi Poskovic, print artist and professor at the Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. This exhibition includes the work of: Antwerp-based Goedele Peeters, Detroit’s own Susan Goethel Campbell, New Orleans-based Teresa Cole, Nebraska’s Karen Kunc, Katy Collier for Minnesota, and Amada Lilleston from Michigan.

This show is also presented in conjunction with the Mid-American Print Council Conference entitled Print City held at Wayne State University.
