Introduction by Sylvia Solocheck Walters.
Publishers' statements by Sherry Smith Bell (Blue Sky Press) and James Reed (Milestone Graphics).
From introduction: The virtue of this portfolio lies in the commitment of its two small dissimilar publishers -- Milestone
Graphics and Blue Sky Press -- to find a way to bring a select group of independent artists from alternate sides of the country
together and create a "Cross Currents" from their work... James Reed's Milestone Graphics is a traditional atelier for printmakers
who contract to produce work collaboratively with him. The four artists included in this portfolio under his auspices... use
black and white representational language, based in drawing, to look for hidden meaning beyond the surface... Sherry Bell
Smith works with artists who print their own editions and usually employ newish hybrid printing techniques as well as color.
They are invited to participate in Bell's publications based on her own deep interest in innovative practices as well as her
particular taste in narrative...
