Printmaking Exhibition "EastWest: A Survey of Contemporary Printmaking" is presented by the Department of Art and Design March 25-April 12.


The Department of Art and Design at Utah State University presents “EastWest: A Survey of Contemporary Printmaking” March 25 through April 12 in the Tippetts Exhibit Hall in the Chase Fine Arts Center on the Logan campus.

“This exhibit reflects and celebrates the many methods of printmaking practice and education in the United States,” said Kathy Puzey, assistant professor of printmaking in the Caine College of the Arts. “Each state is represented, and artists were asked to embrace their current techniques and conceptual concerns while creating their piece.”

One hundred artists will be highlighted, each one chosen based on their careers as practicing printmaking artists and teachers. The show includes printmaking techniques used in lithography, intaglio, woodcut, silkscreen, archival pigment, hybrid, intaglio types and photo-relief prints.

“The exhibition celebrates these artists as innovators for their continued development of the printmaking medium and their own unique artistic visions,” said Puzey. “These printmakers have had and continue to have dramatic impacts on printmaking education, their institutions and printmaking workshops.”

EastWest: A Survey of Contemporary Printmaking” is in the Tippetts Exhibit Hall, located in the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s campus. The exhibit is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit Caine college’s Production Services website.
