Opening Friday: Who could resist the playful pun in this show's title? It's cute enough to, maybe, rouse The Artist himself. Meanwhile, 29 local printmakers will show and sell their latest creations, all of them executed at Highpoint's state-of-the-art facility. They've produced hundreds of pieces in recent months, 50 of which were chosen for this show of lithographs, relief, intaglio and screen prints. Styles range from Brian Hartley Sago's poetic riffs on European and Middle Eastern history (camels, King Faisal, the Eiffel Tower) to the colorful abstractions of Josh Bindewald, minimalist landscapes by Pamela Carberry and Mike Elko's comic encounters with contemporary life including "The New Neighbor's Dog," shown here. Savvy holiday shoppers will appreciate the 20-percent-off sale opening night. (Opening reception 6:30-9 p.m. Fri., free. Highpoint Center for Printmaking, 912 W. Lake St., Mpls. Ends Jan. 26, free. 612-871-1326 or www.highpointcenterforprintmaking.org)
