The art of printmaking, with its long and enduring history, has continued to develop and diversify well into the twenty-first century. Artists are using the multiplicity and accessibility of print media to comment on relevant issues and promote change.

In addition, the printmaking process is incredibly experiential, allowing for artists to engage with the medium and communicate their personal interests and concerns.

Printmaking encompasses a wide range of techniques including etching, monotypes, screen printing, lithography, stenciling, and countless others as well as combinations. all of which are welcome in this exhibition.
