The Lancaster Museum of Art is pleased to announce an exhibition that focuses on the art of printmaking and the bevy of talented local artists here in Lancaster. The Art of the Big Print: Master Lancaster Printmakers at the Lancaster Museum of Art will feature six master printmakers that live and work locally. All of these artists will create relief prints that are 30 x 40 inches on a piece of Baltic Birch wood. The artists participating are; Milt Friedly, Jeff Geib, Matthew Lawrence, Robert Patierno, Gene Shaw, and Brant Schuller.
The artists will be also be joined by BIG INK’s Lyell Castonguay on Friday April 6th to print their large blocks. The public is invited to come and experience this unusual activity of printing such large blocks as well as experience print making themselves. The prints that are made by the artists on April 6th will then be included in the exhibition. This exhibition is on view in tandem with the exhibition, Printmaking through History: An Artists Print on view at the Demuth Museum location from April 14 – May 26, 2018
