This exhibition encompasses artists from four states which are in the heart of the western United States. Except for the subject matter of some of the prints, one would find it difficult to define this group of works as having some shared regional aesthetic. Indeed, quite the opposite is the case. The works demonstrate that the artists are part of a national, if not international, printmaking world which is characterized by indiviuality in the choices of style, media, and subject matter. Visual heterogeneity dominates the works. Their westernness is, simply, a factor of a geopolitical reality, not artistic criteria.
