Prints Byte: the cutting edge of printmaking opens Friday, February 5 from 7-9 pm at SOMARTS Cultural Center in San Francisco.

Co-curated by Justin Hoover and Hanna Regev, Prints Byte looks at new ways that the field of printmaking is redefining itself with new technologies, new processes and new direction. The show includes work by a wide variety of artists from Kara Maria to Nancy Genn, Yuzo Nakano to (Magnolia neighbor) Kamau Patton, and features several recent prints by Enrique Chagoya published by Magnolia.

Also, Magnolia's Don Farnsworth will moderate a panel discussion, The Politics and History of Printmaking, featuring Art Hazelwood, Robert Flynn Johnson, and Steve Lopez, on Saturday, February 20 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm.
