This fall, Highpoint Center in south Minneapolis continues to show how printmakers push the boundaries of the medium, from thoughtfully fresh takes on traditional approaches to edgy political statements using new techniques. For “Transference,” the space will host a collection of work from printmakers with connections to Mni Sota Makoce, a Dakota phrase that translates to “land where the waters reflect the clouds.” Curated by Alexandra Buffalohead, the show features Native artists including Dyani White Hawk, whose works are reminiscent of textiles; Julie Buffalohead, with her animal characters that are both playful and scathing; and Gordon Coon, whose pieces boast a colorful spirituality. Jim Denomie, George Morrison, Frank Big Bear, Star Wallowing Bull, Angela Two Stars, and Andrea Carlson are among the many artists highlighted in this exhibition. The show is on view now, and there will be a public reception on Friday, October 4, from 6:30 to 9 p.m.; and a Free Ink Day event with Denomie and Alex Buffalohead from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, October 26.
