Big Ol’ Steamrollin’ prints featured in KAC exhibit

CLINTON — The Kirkland Art Center in Clinton will host an exhibition of large-scale art prints created by 25 local artists and produced using an Oneida County Public Works steam roller. 

The prints were made for BOSPI, the Big Ol’ Steamrollin’ Print Invitational, which was held on Thursday, July 14, as part of this year’s Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute summer Arts Festival. MWPAI invited the artists to participate in BOSPI.

Each artist was provided with a 4-foot by 4-foot sheet of plywood and encouraged to create a carved design. Volunteers inked the plywood sheets and placed them flat on the pavement in the museum’s parking lot. Then, the panels were covered with canvas and rolled over with a steamroller to make imprints on the canvas.

The large, beautiful prints from BOSPI will be showcased in an exhibition at the Kirkland Art Center on East Park Row in Clinton from July 30 through September 3.

Most of the prints will be available for purchase.

The public is invited to an opening party from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 30.

The exhibition is available for viewing on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m. The gallery is wheelchair accessible.  

The Kirkland Art Center is a non-profit community arts organization whose mission is to educate children and adults, to advocate for artists and the arts, and to engage the community in a range of cultural experiences and opportunities.
