Gallery Talk: Printmaking: Silkscreen and Lithography

Talk by Heidi Judkins, ’10 – Tuesday, May 4, 2010 at 1:15 p.m.

With their many stages of production, the mediums of silkscreen and lithography are often mysterious to art audiences. This short gallery talk will focus on a small group of works from the collection and utilize a PowerPoint detailing the processes of both mediums, step-by-step.

Through this, the audience will gain more appreciation of the amount of work that is put into each print. Also, by knowing the steps of the printmaking process, audiences will be able to visualize the evolution of what they are actually looking at the next time they see a silkscreen or a lithograph. Works drawn from the collection will be used to illustrate the range that each process can produce.
