View a slideshow of the work here.


Jessica Meuninck-Ganger and Nathaniel Stern show the most recent fruits of their collaboration in conjunction with Print:MKE, the SGC International Print Conference. In addition to works that fuse printmaking and video, they will be showing a three dimensional work related to the screen-based work, and will be creating a new installation in the porch windows at Lynden that continues their exploration of surfaces, layers, membranes, matrices and the physical relationship between viewer and object. Also on view: prints from the Bradley Family Foundation collection.
