The plain truth is when we save species, we’re actually saving ourselves.


For many of Earth’s creatures, time is running out. Half of the world’s plant and animal species will soon be threatened with extinction. The Photo Ark is a collection of photographs that documents the worlds species that we have a chance of losing. It is a visual connection between the animals and people who can help protect them. By isolating animals on black and white backgrounds, we can look them directly in the eye and quickly see that these creatures contain beauty, grace and intelligence. Perhaps some even hold the key to our very salvation. Learn more at  photoark.com

Printer’s Statement


Pele Prints is a collaborative fine art printmaking studio dedicated to creating limited edition prints and original works of art. At Pele Prints, we take a non-traditional approach to each project and encourage experimentation. Here artists are free to explore their ideas in the studio, using multiple print processes as a jumping-off point. While the print medium is the primary focus, finished pieces may also include three-dimensional components, collage, handwork, and/or various other elements. The goal is to create a unique body of work that displays the curiosity, learning, and constant discovery exemplified in the collaborative process at its best.


In addition to being an artist, Amanda Verbeck is the collaborative printer and publisher at Pele Prints. She is a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis and has 14 years of experience as a printmaker. After working with several presses in the St. Louis area, Amanda started Pele Prints in 2006.


Exhibition Statement


Featuring a selection of new and recent work created at Pele Prints by a range of artists, these exhibitions will ex-plore related themes of design, structure and narrative inspired by organic forms, nature and humanity.


Structure, Story & Flow presents imagery inspired by nature, form, and human fantasy. Opulent, large-scale prints invoking waves, wings, landscapes and atmosphere juxtapose intimate, textural works reminiscent of cell struc-tures and light. These formal, more abstract adventures of color and gesture complement fantastical narratives merging aspects of human, animal and architecture within psychologically charged vignettes.


This exhibition is curated by Heather Lustfeldt, a curator, writer, educator and collection consultant in Kansas City. Heather is currently Curator at Epsten Gallery Foundation in Overland Park, KS.
