Jeremy Lundquist Exhibiting at Highpoint Center for Printmaking
June 17, 2021
Work by Jeremy Lundquist, Visual Arts Instructor, is currently on display at Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis. The exhibition runs through July 1st, 2021.
Alarm Alarm is a series of progressive etchings that started with the exterior of a building not far from Lundquist’s home. “The text on the side of the building says ‘Alarm Products’ in big bold blue letters,” wrote Jeremy in his artist statement. “The first (and last) etching in this series is simply a remaking of that façade with Alarm stated twice. The repetition of the word alarm mimics an alarm itself. How many times will the alarm repeat before it is heard? How many times before it is heeded?”
This work was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. The Minnesota State Arts Board is funded by a legislative appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature. For more information about the exhibit, visit Highpoint’s event page.
Highpoint Editions artist, Carolyn Swiszcz, reviewed the exhibit: “I highly recommend Alarm Alarm, Jeremy Lundquist’s show of progressive etchings. A progressive etching is a print process in which an image is created on a copper plate and printed, and then the same plate is scraped and re-worked with new imagery and printed again (eight times in this project). You can often see remnants of older states in subsequent images. This way of working produces rich detail, and in this case there are also dense layers of meaning accompanying the imagery.” Read more of Swiszcz’s review here.
Jeremy Lundquist has been teaching Visual Arts at Perpich since 2015. He primarily teaches printmaking classes along with foundations courses. Jeremy also taught at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and the University of Iowa.

He has been an artist-in-residence at Ox-Bow, Harold Arts, Spudnik Press, Kala Art Institute, the Vermont Studio Center, the University of Iowa as a Grant Wood Fellow, and at Highpoint Center for Printmaking as a Jerome Foundation resident.

Lundquist holds a BA in studio art from Grinnell College and an MFA in printmaking from Ohio University.
Highpoint Center for Printmaking is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the art of printmaking. Its goals are to provide educational programs, community access, and collaborative publishing opportunities to engage the community and increase the appreciation and understanding of the printmaking arts. Highpoint Center for Printmaking was established in April 2001 and is the only accessible, community-oriented facility of its kind in the Upper Midwest. Until Highpoint opened its doors, broad public access to the printmaking arts was virtually non-existent in this part of the country.
