 Congratulations to all participating artists. It is trulFall MAPC show at Banshee Denver y a show to be proud of. From the Sue Oheme/Juror: “In choosing these images for the exhibition, my first choices were pieces that simply stood out to me in some way with a strong sense of design, color, technique, and/or content. A few knocked my socks off, figuratively speaking.  As there was no formal theme to follow or plug images into, I hoped that would open up the possibility for one to emerge. It seems that the only thread pulling these images together is the high level of overall quality. I was pleasantly surprised by the printmaking skill exhibited with many entries; it was not an easy decision.  Keep on printing.”
