Graduate Studio, Douglas Street, Bloomington, October 5, 2007. Julia Goos and Eleanor Jensen organized this portfolio exchange and exhibition featuring fifteen artists. Evidence can be collected and combined, recorded and presented. It is defined as both a noun and a verb. Evidence can be a documentation of information or an experienced activity. In this portfolio, exchange artists will use their own visual language to explore material or conceptual evidence. This collection is intended to demonstrate the wide-range in printmaking process and in the interpretation of an idea. It will in itself evidence the expansive relationship between mark-making and meaning.
