The Art of Printmaking: Selections from the Permanent Collection

Nov 03, 2023 Mar 10, 2024

The Art of Printmaking: Selections from the Permanent Collection features works created from various printmaking techniques including woodcut, etchings, lithography, and screen printing.

These forms of printmaking have grown popular in modern times, but have been around for centuries, inspiring contemporary artists such as Caldonia Curry/Swoon, whose exhibition is currently on view.

This exhibition highlights artists such as Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, Leonard Baskin, Romare Bearden, and Robert Rauschenberg, many of whom Swoon credits with forming her love for printmaking—while giving insight into the processes that provided artists an opportunity to expose their artwork to wider audiences, from Japanese woodblock prints to the silkscreen prints of Pop Art.

The Art of Printmaking: Selections from the Permanent Collection is on view in the David R. and Susan S. Goode Gallery.
