As we enter 2011, we will be focusing on printmaking with the, Southern California Printmaking Exhibition. This exhibition will showcase some of the artists who have been instrumental in making printmaking an Art Center tradition, as well as incorporating new and innovating artists from Southern California - artists that offer different techniques - producing distinctive ideas on the traditional methods of printmaking. The exhibition will also showcase an educational portion featuring step-by-step printmaking techniques. This exhibition is dedicated to master printmaker and curator Patrick Merrill in memoriam for his devotion to the fine art of printmaking.
