June 28, 2009 – Self Help Graphics & Art ANNUAL PRINT FAIR, noon to 5pm
We are delighted to invite you to the first showing of the latest suite of fine art prints from world celebrated print studio, Self Help Graphics & Art in East Los Angeles.
The Annual Print Fairs at Self Help Graphics (SHG) have reached record breaking levels these past few years, due to the return of cherished and renown print artists to the SHG studios. These newest collections reflect the popular artists and print styles that have created the genre of art that SHG is know for. Favianna Rodriguez, whose previous print designs and themes have proved to be very coveted, returned to SHG in 2009 to produce another exquisite print series.
Also, this year we are proud to announce two unique print ateliers, one curated by sticker bombing designer Rick Ahrens/Sticky Rick and master printer, Joe Alpuche. These prints for a Farmlab project called “New Political Posters from TJ2LA” were part of an artistic dialogue between Los Angeles and Tijuana fine art printers.
The second premiering atelier suite was assembled by international artist, Gronk, and includes prints by his favorite artists, such as poet Marisela Norte, and a new print of his own as well. In addition there are 35 new series and mono-prints, including a commemorative print by Marianne Sadowski celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Mexican Revolution (1910-2010).
As usual there will also be small prints made in multi-disciplinary techniques such as wood block, linocut and etching. Vintage prints will also be available, including some unearthed oldies from our recent house cleaning discoveries.
Come to Self Help Graphics for an afternoon salon of beautiful art and to meet the artists who have created and curated these latest works. Yolanda Gonzalez will create mono-print portraits on the spot during the print fair.
