NO TRESPASSING features local photographer and printer Meg Turner’s on-going series of industrial ruins. Shooting with a large-format camera and operating under, over, and through the radar, Turner explores the landscape of American industry that has been left behind by globalization and industrial out-sourcing. All prints shown are gravure -both copper and polymer- prints made by the artist.
NO TRESPASSING – Artist’s talk
Meg Turner will be talking about her work, the centuries-old relationship between printmaking and architectural ruins, the changing industrial landscape of America, and the processes of photogravure and polymer gravure.
