In printmaking\, the B.A.T. is the final trial proof that th e artist approves\, indicating for the printer what an edition should look like. \;B.A.T. (Bon à\; Tirer/Good to Go) \;at Offramp Gallery\, opening December 8\, 2013\, features the work s of 21 women artists who have printed with master printer \;Fr ancesco Siqueiros \;of \;El Nopal Press. \;

\n

Located in downtown Los Angeles\, the press has worked with an imp ressive roster of artists in its 25-year history. Siqueiros has focused mai nly on artists from Los Angeles and Mexico City\, but he has worked with ar tists from New York\, Paris\, and Buenos Aires as well. \;

\n

In c onsidering the selections for this exhibition\, the number of women El Nopa l Press has published is impressive. Printmaking has long been an art form that not only has been open and available to women artists\, but one in whi ch they have excelled. This is especially apparent in the history of printm aking in Los Angeles\, where June Wayne had such a hand in establishing the importance of the medium.

\n

Siqueiros is a great collaborator and in novator\, allowing artists to experiment with the process and new technique s in order to achieve the desired result. The strength of the work in this exhibition represents not only the skill of the artists but the unique rela tionship between artist and master printer.
