Get ready to say goodbye to Colin Quashie's plantation Monopoly board, because it's about to be replaced by something new from Mark Hosford, a leader in the world of modern screenprinting. The Missouri native is teaming up with Massachusetts artist Janice Jakeilski for Subtle Imperfections, an exhibit that explores personal relationships through play. "We chose to do both of these artists together because they both deal with play and hard issues, but their message comes across as child-like and innocent," says Redux Executive Director Janie Askew. "Their work makes hard things easier to deal with and will balance each other well." Askew first met Hosford while attending an intensive printmaking workshop that he was teaching. "I chose him because I thought his work would transfer well. We also teach screenprinting classes here, so we figured he could help teach our artists." We're still not sure what the new mural will look like, but expect to see some intricate Rorschach-style works and vibrant screenprints influenced by comics, sci-fi, and street art from Hosford inside the gallery. Jakeilski will offer a collection of wearable props that act as a sort of social experiment.
