Backward is Forward: Layer and Impact In Printmaking
The Museums of Los Gatos presents Backward is Forward: Layer and Impact in Printmaking, September 26, 2013 – January 12, 2014. This exciting exhibition features prints by Enrique Chagoya, Hung Liu, Sam Francis, David Gilhooly, Gregory Edwards, Michael Mazur, Frank Lobdell, Andrew Romanoff, Inez Storer, Nathan Oliveira, Erik Bakke, Joan Miro, Marguerite Saegesser, Ruth Wall, Kathy Aoki, Vicky M. Chen, Tom Killion, Jessica Dunne, and Robin McCloskey.
Artists have been using printmaking processes for centuries to create thought-provoking works of art, however the details of the medium are often a mystery to viewers. Backward is Forward: Layer and Impact in Printmaking brings together the work of nineteen artists and reveals the techniques behind relief, intaglio, and planographic printmaking processes.
Visitors will have the opportunity to explore a range of content from the work of well-known artists who include printmaking among their many modes of expression, and those who use printmaking as their primary creative practice. Audiences will discover the tools of the trade that facilitate printmaking techniques and are invited to participate in hands-on art activities in the community gallery.
