imPRESSED A Celebration of Printmaking Exhibit Opens
ImPRESSED celebrates the art of printmaking and community. Prints from local artists, both contemporary and beloved, will come together to inspire an appreciation for the fine art of printmaking while offering a warm invitation to try your hand at becoming a printmaker!
From the Museum’s collection, prints from the co-founder of Mendocino Art Center Bill Zacha, notable Bay Area artist Henry Evans, artist and local activist Emmy Lou Packard, and cherished Mendocino College art professor Paula Gray will grace the walls of the Long Gallery.
Alongside these favorites, contemporary works from artists: Kristin Hock, Mike Barnes, Jerry Turner, and Jackson Deyerle of Ft. Bragg’s Art Explorers will also be displayed. Through art and writing these artists share their insights about creativity and ‘explore’ the importance of making art as a community.
The Mendocino County Museum is excited to host community art educator Miss Rossi, who will lead introductory classes in linoleum block printing. The Museum will lead History Makers: Printmaking programs on the first Saturday and every Wednesday during August. Last but certainly not least, The Roots of Motive Power invites the community to have linocut blocks printed by their Buffalo Springfield roller during their 40th Annual Steam Festival on September 10th & 11th.
