Fold: Ten Conversations is an exhibition at C.R. Ettinger Studio that expands on printmaking’s roots in communal production and its role as a vehicle for creative relationships. Exhibition through December 22, 2017 It features Ivanco Talevski’s collaborations and interactions with ten fellow artists connected to Philadelphia: Jane Irish, Sarah McEneaney, Matt Neff, Didier William, Chad Andrews, Joan Curran, Vasko Dukovski, mouth, Illya Mousavijad, and the late Hitoshi Nakazato. Throughout, Talevski recognizes that printmaking processes—both traditional and nontraditional—bring people together to exchange ideas imaginatively. The C.R. Ettinger Studio Gallery features exhibitions of prints and printmaking related works. The gallery has irregular hours (usually open from 1:00 till 6:00 Tuesday through Friday), but always best to contact before visiting or take your chances. Also open by appointment 7 days a week. www.crettinger.com
