Throughout the fall 2023 semester, visit three exhibits in Skillman Library celebrating the art of printmaking.
Helen Frank: The Monotypes
The magical and painterly monotypes of Helen Frank explore the mystery of chance in art making. Each unique print is made by applying paint or printing ink to a plexi-glass sheet and transferring the image to paper through a printing press. For the last 75 years, Frank has created thousands of prints in the basement studio of her New Jersey home. She finds joy and excitement in the many variables of the monotype process, which appeals to artists who work fast and thrive on spontaneity.
Experimental Printmaking Institute Master Prints: Techniques and Transformation
Skillman Library is pleased to introduce an exhibition that celebrates the creative, technical, and visual ideas unique to printmaking. Prints from EPI’s collection span over twenty years of work by artists representing diverse racial, cultural, social, and national backgrounds.
From Woodcut to Screen Print: Selected Works from the Holdings of Special Collections
Skillman Library’s Simon Reading Room invites you to view an exhibition featuring an assortment of printed works that highlight seven printmaking processes–from the oldest relief printing techniques to visually bold screen prints. Selections show printmaking as an ever-evolving medium that explores new ways of working with the printed image.
