Lee Ann Frame-Traveling Marbles II

Lee Ann Frame

From the beginning when humans would put mud, blood or paints on their hands and make prints upon walls of caves to record their stories or to communicate an event, printmaking has been an important tradition. We’ve come a long way from those days to engraving metal plates, carving wood or linoleum blocks, creating lithographs and screens to make our prints. The one thing that ties them together is the ability to make multiples, to share an image more than once, to put art in the hands of many. This exhibit will combine multiple methods of printmaking, with the talents of regional contemporary printmakers to show how the tradition continues in contemporary times.

Alynn Guerra, Lee Ann Frame, Ladislav Hanka, Johanna Paas, Olivia Timmons, Cindi Ford, Annie Wassmann, Andrew Jagneicki and Chad Pastotnik will be featured in this printmaking exhibition.
