New Exhibition - Judy Pfaff & Mingering Mike @ HEMPHILL

June 13 - August 15, 2009

June 13, 2009 reception from 6:30-8:30 pm.

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. These covers document the self-taught artist’s journey through the cultural and political tumult of the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War.
