News: Print portfolio produced at AS220 Industries on view at Sprout CoWorking.

PROVIDENCE, RI (August 2019) — AS220 Industries and its members are excited to present {Un]Common Ground at Sprout CoWorking on Thursday, August 15th. 

{Un]Common Ground is a print exchange portfolio exhibition created by twenty members of the AS220 Industries, AS220’s collection of community workspaces and resources for digital fabrication, printmaking and media arts, located in Providence, RI. The project was organized and curated by AS220 resident and long time Industries member, Ryan Dean of Lumuku

Dean pulled together artists and makers, all members of AS220 Industries, to bring their different skills and backgrounds together to create unique prints. The concept behind [Un]Common Ground was to pair members from different disciplines at random in hopes that they would create a print edition using an interdisciplinary approach. Each pair utilized the printmaking, media, and digital fabrication resources available at the AS220 Industries. The result is a stunning suite of prints, impressive both in its diverse approach to image making and its ability to spotlight the talent and vibrancy of the AS220 Industries membership and community. 

The participating member artists include: Zabdiel Alejandro, Jacques Bidon, Jenny Booth, Savannah DaCruz, Ryan Dean, Madison Emond, Michael Ezzell, Brian Hennessy, Shannon Kennelly, Britton Kroessler, Hannah Liongoren, Rosemary Marchetta, John Paul McCaughey, Jose Menendez, Ryan Pease, David Riley, Juli Schlag, Leigh Waldron-Taylor, and Rachael Wise.
