This exhibition showcases the artwork created by our 2015 resident artists Sharon Lindenfeld, Angela Pilgrim, and Luke Walter. For six months, these artists have had unlimited access to facilities at the shop to explore and engage with fine art printmaking processes in order to expand their artistic practice. This exhibition highlights the importance of accessibility to workspace and resources as it showcases work created in an active, cooperative print shop right here in Newark. The exhibition is on view from September 26 through November 13, 2015.

Artists on view:

SHARON LINDENFELD is a Weehawken, NJ based printmaker whose work depicts ambiguous, dreamlike landscapes. She begins with small observational drawings, then blows them up into large-scale prints. The images are then transformed through the use of experimental printmaking processes. Sharon completed her undergraduate degrees in printmaking at Dartmouth College and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and earned her MFA at Indiana University—Bloomington. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the Krakow Print Triennial in Krakow, Poland; the Lu Haisu museum in Shanghai, China; International Print Center in New York; and El Minia University in El Minia, Egypt. She has worked the last two years as an editions printer at various printmaking studios across New York City.

ANGELA PILGRIM is a self taught artist born in Paterson, NJ in 1991. Pilgrim works predominantly in the medium of painting and Illustration, but has recently expanded her work to large scale screen prints on fabric. Influenced by her African American background, the subject matter of her work is primarily people of color. Her work can be described as pop-infused contemporary art inspired by the styles of artists such as Henry Matisse, Kara Walker and Mickalene Thomas. She has shown work and is included in private collections along the East and West Coast. She is currently completing her 2015 Artist in Residence Program in Newark, NJ.

LUKE WALTER chose to pursue still photography at the School of Visual Arts in New York City following a year of film study at Ithaca College. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, acquiring a wealth of knowledge he would later implement in both personal and commercial endeavors. Luke has since done just that, continuously producing photo and video work for clients, and exhibiting his art in various venues. While he travels as much as possible, he resides in New Jersey, working throughout the NYC metropolitan area.
