The Boston Printmakers Student Print Exhibition has been held concurrently with the North American Print Biennial for the past 10 years. This competitive exhibition is comprised of 80 undergraduate student prints that were selected by a panel of professional artists. This year, 10 Lesley Art and Design students were selected to exhibit their work.
Students are provided a professional venue and context in which to show their work, which differs significantly from a typical student group show. For many participating students, this is their first opportunity to professionally exhibit work. Students and faculty, as well as the broader public, have the rare opportunity to see work produced at these area art schools and colleges in one large exhibition.
The Boston Printmakers is an all-volunteer, nonprofit print organization housed at the Lesley University College of Art and Design. In this case, the student print exhibition is organized from start to finish by a member volunteer, Nancy Diessner. Nancy is the owner and operator of Dog’s Eye Print Studio in Framingham, MA. She works with low-toxic materials and photopolymer intaglio prints that explore the mysterious, complex connections between humans and animals. Nancy dedicates countless hours to this New England event to benefit students and for this we are beyond grateful.
