"Unfortunately, a week after the exhibition opened, a fire in the café next to the gallery displaced us for eight months until repairs were made and we could reopen in May 2022," a gallery statement said.

The statement continued, "Though the process of reopening the gallery presented many challenges, one of the most difficult was not being able to showcase an exceptional group of artists to the extent they deserved. To that end, we curated 'Reprise' to include the four artists from 2021’s interrupted show, with the addition of two more of our talented printmakers. 'Reprise' includes new work from each of the artists and some prints from One of One that were not widely seen.

"A particularly technical and varied medium, printmaking is often misunderstood. Exhibitions focusing solely on printmaking are a wonderful way to educate the public and to celebrate the breadth of possibility inherent in the medium’s processes. Working in woodcut, cyanotype, silkscreen, etching and chine-collé, the artists of 'Reprise' exemplify the ingenuity and visual diversity of printmaking," the gallery statement concluded.
