Inky Hands Print Studio and Gallery of Plymouth, MA  presents Mayflower 400, a project recognizing the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower crossing. Developed in conjunction with Cowprint Artists Group of Red Hot Press in Southampton, UK.  The Mayflower 400 project brings together printmakers from Plymouth, USA and from Southampton, UK for an international, cross-cultural exhibition of contemporary printmaking. Tori McLean's etching titled 'The Voyage that Made a Nation' will be on display as a framed exhibition print, along with other Cowprint artists' prints and book that the artists have made of the Mayflower's journey.


The collection of USA and UK prints will be on display at Inky Hands Gallery. This collaborative exhibition will provide visual interpretations of the Mayflower’s journey by  35 artists, each responding to the significant event, through their artwork.  Many of the works  have been inspired by the themes of Journey, Spiritual Freedom, Arrival, and The Sea.  These artists work in diverse genres including painting, photography, graphic design, poetry, illustration and printmaking. The resulting prints showcase a variety of technical skills as well as the versatility of the screen printing process, examining the journey, settlement and cultural impact of the Mayflower crossing in contemporary art.
