Including prints from the Swope collection as well as tools on loan from printmaking vendors, Print Shop/Lithography focuses on the various techniques of lithography; including both stone and plate lithography. Viewers will be able to learn about the history, technique, and processes of lithography while viewing a wide variety of work from the collection brought together exclusively for this exhibit.
Print Shop/Lithography is the third in a four part exhibition series curated by Collections Manager Stephanie Standish to showcase the four basic printmaking techniques; relief, intaglio, lithograph and screen print. This series is designed to give viewers a stepping stool into the somewhat intimidating world of printmaking, whether as a buyer, artist or viewer.
