"A Good Impression: A Century of Printmaking in San Diego"
2002-07-06 until 2002-10-27
San Diego Museum of Art
San Diego, CA, USA United States of America

A new exhibition titled A Good Impression: A Century of Printmaking in San Diego surveys some of the remarkable works created by San Diego artists (and those who spent time here) in a variety of printmaking media over the past one hundred years. Opening July 13 and running through October 27, 2002, at the San Diego Museum of Art, the exhibition consists of approximately 60 prints, 30 of which are rarely seen works from the Museum’s own collection, acquired over the years from artists and collectors and connoisseurs. The exhibition also includes a varied selection of contemporary works lent by local art galleries, presses, and by the artists themselves.

Among the printmakers represented in the exhibition are such internationally renowned figures as Harry Sternberg, Italo Scanga, and Françoise Gilot, artists who utilized the traditional printmaking techniques of woodcut and lithography. Also included are artists’ books by Bill Kelly, Deloss McGraw, and Sara Rosenbluth that combine multiple materials and techniques on their books’ printed sheets. An experimental book titled Favored Curry by David Wing, for example, is printed with aromatic spices commonly used in exotic cuisine.

Another group of prints in the exhibition make use of digital and other computer-aided processes. Artists like Harold Cohen, Philipp Scholz Rittermann, Dan Douke, and Twylla Talley are helping to redefine the parameters of the fine art print by developing and incorporating modern technologies into their works.
