America’s culture is one of material and consumption. The mass consumption of pre-packaged products, be it physical materials, culture, or art, generates an exorbitant amount of trash. Trash has become an essential, though often over-looked part of the American way of life. We are surrounded by garbage and immersed in a society of throwaway culture. As printmakers it is important to recognize that the cheapness and ephemerality of our materials has given prints
a status of disposability in the past.  This exchange, which incorporates a spectrum of printmaking media, aims to explore the ideas and themes associated with trash from the viewpoint of contemporary printmakers. It also aims to strengthen the printmaking community by bringing together a variety of artists to discuss the theme of TRASH.
