Members of the Phoenix Rising Printmaking Cooperative present “Winds of Change: People, Places & Environment,” which is currently on view at the Cultural Arts Center. The exhibit features more than 50 recent handmade prints (etchings, relief prints and monoprints) by 10 co-op artists, and centers on the concept of change as a constant in our day-to-day lives — and how each artist perceives and interprets change.

As the event description on Phoenix Rising’s website notes, the “translation of change can be deciphered through examples in nature, personal introspection or even beyond our global level. When a moment of clarity can be captured and shared with a larger community, then time has been made relevant. It is our unique perception of changes, great and small, that composes our personal stories.”

Phoenix Rising core members and artists Anne Cushman and Cindy Davis will participate in an artist’s talk (part of the Cultural Arts Center’s “Conversations and Coffee” series), at noon on Thursday, May 28. They will bring examples of their plates and provide a hands-on explanation of their technique.
