The “Art of the Printmakers” exhibit has opened at the Carpinteria Arts Center in the Charles Lo Bue Gallery. The current exhibition features original prints made using hand and press printing techniques such as etching, drypoint, monoprint, woodblock, collagraph, linocut, clay, lithography, screen printing, transfer and photopolymer plates.
The exhibit runs until Nov. 16, and shows pieces from established artists in the Santa Barbara Printmakers, as well as upcoming artists. The show was juried by Garret Speirs and Bay Hallowell. Speirs commented, “The Art of the Printmakers” exhibit is a grand show demonstrating the broad and experimental nature of printmaking.” All the pieces are available to view and purchase online at carpinteriaartscenter.org, along with newly featured handmade jewelry. The community can also vote on favorite pieces in the people’s choice voting on the arts center’s website.
