The Governor's Gallery is pleased to be presenting Tamarind Institute: Creation, Education, and Collaboration a small survey exhibition of lithographs published by Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The exhibit will include dozens of prints which illustrate the range of the lithographic process and the broad cross section of artists who have worked with the institute over the past few decades. For this exhibition an emphasis was placed on artwork produced at Tamarind Institute since the move to New Mexico and on artists who have lived or worked in New Mexico.
Included will be historically significant prints by Andrew Dasburg, Clinton Adams, and Garo Antresian as well as recently completed editions by Valerie Arber, Juane Quick to See Smith, and Johnnie Winona Ross.
Tamarind Institute was founded in 1960 to preserve and establish fine art lithography in the United States. To accomplish this goal the institute set upon a mission to train master artisan printers, foster collaborative production between artists and printmakers, publish lithographs of outstanding technical and artistic merit, and to broaden the knowledge and prestige of fine art lithography.
Originally based in Los Angeles the institute moved to Albuquerque in 1970 to became a division of the College of Fine Arts at the University of New Mexico. Over the ensuing decades Tamarind has established a stalwart reputation for producing exquisite prints while also educating and training students as master collaborative printmakers. While based in New Mexico Tamarind Institute has worked extensively with artists and arts communities around the world to broaden knowledge of their mission and to produce projects with artists.
