The Hand at Fenix Arts:

Juried exhibit of handmade prints and photographs

October 6 – November 12, 2022

Opening Reception: October 6th

5:00 – 8:00PM

The Hand at Fenix Arts, is an international exhibition of handmade prints and photographs juried by Adam Finkelston and James Meara, he co-editor and publishers of the Hand Magazine. The exhibit drew artist submissions from 28 states and five international countries. Never before in history have more prints and photographs been made per minute, yet each of these exhibited entries takes days to construct by hand. The Hand at Fenix Arts is a celebration of the creative image maker, and the exhibit ranges from a Daguerreotype, one of the earliest forms of photography, to a duotone print. Such range and diversity of printmaking methods has likely never been shown before in the state of Arkansas.

The Hand Magazine is the most recognizable publication for alternative and historic photographic processes and all types of printmaking. It encourages inspiration, education, and community for artists using unique, mixed media, experimental, and idiosyncratic reproduction-based techniques.
