Each participating artist is asked to create a 15” right-angle triangular print. These triangles will be pieced together, regardless of orientation, to create one large mosaic print.

It is hoped this collaboration will explore this innovative creative participation as well as present visually the conceptual migration of themes and ideas, interactions and interpretations, as the individual becomes part of the whole.

A symbol for beauty, growth and renewal as well as destruction, pain and loss. From magnificence to intimacy, a complicated relationship that is, ultimately of our own creation. LA Printmaking was honored to have the well known Los Angeles-based multi-media artist, Merion Estes, as our juror for this exhibition. Estes was the subject of a powerful 20 year retrospective recently on view at the Craft and Folk Art Museum;"Merion Estes:Unnatural Disasters". As Christopher Knight, of the LA Times observed, "in Este's extravagant paintings, not only do exquisite nature, abhorrent degradation, opulence and death coincide. They are inseparable."ARTISTS: Renee Amitai, David Avery, Cynthia Back, MariBeth Baloga, Curtis Bartone, M Sherwood Brock, Cody Cammbell, CathyJean Clark, Cathie Crawford, Sydney Cross, Judy Dekel, Beth Fein, Karen Fiorito, Kathi Flood, Leslie Gray, Dirk Hagner, Dale Klein, Cindy Koopman, Linda Lyke, Rachelle Mark, Diane McLeod, Jackie Nach, Rui Ogura-Lalli, Valentina Quezada, Janet Shlesman, Annie Silverman, Silvia Simmons, Kathleen Thoma, Phumelele Tshabalala, Sylvia Walters, Elizabeth YounceCenter for the Arts Eagle Rock2225 Colorado Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90041Hours: Monday – Friday, 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM

                                                                            Printmaking Summit Registration

The Printmaking Summit will conclude on Saturday, April 20, 2019 with an opening reception of Utopia/ Dystopia, a portfolio of fine art prints created in the form of a deck of 52 playing cards. Curated by Artist and Printmaker, Miyo Stevens-Gandara, twenty-six artists were invited to create two cards for the deck to create their interpretation of utopia and dystopia. The deck of cards allows the project to bring many different artists and styles together creating one unified artwork- a full deck, redefining a traditional portfolio. The concept of a deck of cards is intended to reference many things- games of chance, luck, fortune, war, solitude, precarious situations (house of cards), magic, empire, and divination. It serves as a container for many ideas, and each artist has chosen their own direction.

Artists include Pavel Acevedo, Kay Brown, Ada Pullini Brown, Leslie Dolin, Usen Gandara, Miyo Stevens-Gandara (Curator), Luis Genaro Garcia, J. Leigh Garcia, Margaret Griffith, Rogelio Gutierrez, Phung Huynh, Dongeun Lee, Kelvin Lopez, Rosalie Lopez, Sandra Low, Poli Marichal, Álvaro D. Márquez, Dalila Mendez, Wayne Perry, Sandy Rodriguez, Victor Rosas, Marianne Sadowski, Dewey Tafoya, Alex Fridrich-Ward, Christian Salcedo Ward and Andi Xoch.

Each day the evening portion of the Printmaking Summit is open to the public. RSVP here to attend one of the following events:
Thursday, April 18, 6 - 6:45 p.m. Keynote Speaker, Alison Sar *RSVP Required
