Scattered in galleries about town during the 2010 Mid America Print Council Conference, "New World/Old World" is a series of small shows in which artists explore the juxtaposition of tradition and innovation in printmaking. Along with an exhibition at the University of Minnesota Regis Center for Art, which is hosting the conference "Form + Content" in downtown Minneapolis will display handcrafted books and delicately constructed specimen boxes through which Jody Williams expresses her fascination with fossils.
