Gallery CTA, located on the 8th floor of the Zions Bank Building at CTA Architects and Engineers, 800 W. Main St. in Boise, will exhibit works on paper by Jill AnnieMargaret.
The exhibition, Etching Into Existence, presents a meditative search for direction and meaning revealed through the process of copper plate etching and monotype. Intended to offer solace and refuge, the prints feature several repeated characters, from individual patches of lichen to “various familiars.” Through detailed line work, color and multiple plate layering, the project blurs the boundaries between subjects while creating space for contemplation.
Jill AnnieMargaret directs the printmaking program at Boise State. Her work addresses issues related to the subconscious, trauma, sexual assault and freedom. The reification of these experiences manifests in print related mediums combined with performance, installation, collection and artist books. Jill AnnieMargaret has presented solo exhibitions in Japan, Argentina, Italy and the United States.
The gallery hosts an opening reception from 5 -8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1. The exhibition runs through May 4.
The gallery is open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
