From Plate to Print

An Introduction to Printmaking

June 13 – July 30, 2017

 

The Martin Museum of Art at Baylor University will feature From Plate to Print: An Introduction to Printmaking from June 13 through July 30.  The exhibition opens at 10:00 am on Tuesday, June 13, and features works from the Martin Museum of Art’s permanent collection.

 

Printmaking as an art form is beautifully complex and has a rich, interesting history.  While viewing an etching, or a lithograph is rewarding, the processes used to produce great works of art often remain a mystery.

 

The Martin Museum of Art boasts an exciting printmaking collection including works created in woodcut, engraving, etching, and lithography among many other techniques.  This exhibition focuses on several printmaking methods and the processes involved, using examples from the Museum’s collection, including work by John James Audubon, Robert Rauschenberg, and Rembrandt van Rijn.  Several prints created by students in Baylor’s Department of Art are also on display.  These prints, along with their corresponding plates, also help to illustrate the complex processes involved in printmaking.

 

The Martin Museum of Art will open From Plate to Print: An Introduction to Printmaking at 10:00 am on Tuesday, June 13. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
