by the Contemporary Printmakers of Prescott
February 27 – March 24
4th Friday Art Walk Reception
February 28th 5:00 – 7:00 PM
This exhibition showcases an entire range of printmaking—utilizing age-old techniques like etching and drypoint, and also more contemporary applications such as Solarplate and digital transfer. The participating artists range from degree seeking art students to artists who exhibit internationally. They all have studied Advanced Printmaking at Yavapai College. Viewers not familiar with the vocabulary, techniques and processes used in Fine Art Printmaking will find an area that features a glossary of terms.
