Mendocino College Art Gallery Will Show the Work of Eight Highly Respected California Printmakers Feb 7-Mar 1

January 31, 2019

The Mendocino College Art Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of Northern California luminaries in the medium of printmaking. The public is invited to attend an opening on February 7 from 4-6 PM, where they can meet some of the artists and talk with them about their work. Refreshments will be served.

The exhibition features eight artists who employ many different techniques of printing. Tom Killion, the celebrated Marin printmaker, is well known for his wood and linoleum-cut landscape prints inspired by the iconic style of Japanese artist Hokusai. He is also known for his popular books featuring his prints, such as 28 Views of Mount Tamalpais, and California's Wild Edge, coupled with poems by Gary Snider and others. The College Gallery is also very pleased to host Fort Bragg artist and longtime Bay Area art educator Larry Thomas on our campus as part of the show. Larry’s move to the Mendocino coast after a long career as professor and educator at the San Francisco Art Institute is an exciting addition to the culture and advocacy of art in our county. Jonathan Palmer and Anne Beck, two Mendocino College instructors will also be showing their evocative printed artworks.
