The Outlaw Printmakers are a tight-knit group of international printers that formed in New York City in 2000 and largely names Richard Mock as their primary influence. Mock, whose narrative work is politically-influenced, is widely known from the New York Times op-ed pages from the early 1980s through the ‘90s.
The exhibition will tell the history of this group through ephemera, new work by the Outlaws, and lino blocks and work by Mock. Prints from Bill Fick, Tom Huck, Dennis McNett, Sean Starwars, Katherine Polk and more will be exhibited.
Outlaw Printmakers range in skill from lithography to block and relief. What they have in common is an undercurrent of the macabre, metal/punk rock, pop culture, and at times satirical and political themes.
This exhibition is organized by artist Dennis McNett.
