Judy Pfaff: New Prints and Mingering Mike: Prints & New Work

Exhibition: June 13–August 15, 2009
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 13, 2009, 6:30pm–8:30pm

Well known for her elaborate installations, Judy Pfaff has created prints and drawings throughout her career. In Judy Pfaff: New Prints, Hemphill presents a series of prints recently published by Tandem Press. The exhibition includes four prints from a series titled Year of the Dog, which she began in 2006 – the most recent year of the Dog according to the Chinese zodiac. Like Pfaff’s installations, these prints are multi-layered and utilize a variety of materials and processes including woodcut, stencil, hand-painting and collage.

Since his “discovery”, Mingering Mike has emerged as a cultural phenomenon - he is the subject of the book Mingering Mike, The Amazing Career of an Imaginary Soul Superstar, by Dori Hadar, has developed a strong fan base on the web, and made a special appearance at the 2008 SXSW Music and Media Festival. Mingering Mike: Prints & New Work will exhibit for the first time archival pigment prints made from a selection of Mingering Mike’s original record album covers. New original album covers will also be on view.

Hemphill, 1515 14th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20005
