The Fine Art of Printmaking : A Talk with Artist Liz Shepherd

Join us on Wednesday, September 22, at 6:30 for a talk with artist and printmaker Liz Shepherd. Liz Shepherd has been exploring the possibilities of contemporary printmaking for the past 15 years, moving beyond two-dimensional traditional etchings, woodcuts, and monoprints, to sculptural forms. She has produced large scale installations, filling a 60-foot gallery with silkscreen prints on fabric for example, hanging cast papier mâché chairs made from silk screened handmade Japanese paper, and hand printed corrugated cardboard furniture. Shepherd will show examples of this work and explain how it is made.
