The public is invited to a free opening reception on Saturday, April 8 from 4:30 – 7:30 pm. NEW this year, Access/Print teens will lead a FREE, hands-on screenprinting activity during the opening. All are welcome to try their hand at pulling a screenprint!
Access/Print is a free mentorship program that hosts 8-10 outstanding teen artists each school year.

Fall 2016 artists: Allison Baxter, Sinclair Myhre, Leah Peterson, and Pa Zong Vang. Spring 2017 artists: Summer Bordon, Sarah Gallagher, Henry Louris, Alice McGee, and Fiona McKenna.
The Look/See portion of the exhibition features relief, drypoint, monotype, and screenprints made by Highpoint’s school aged visitors during 2016-2017.
