Printing Day for the Art of the Big Print

Join us from 2 - 6 pm at the Lancaster Museum of Art for a special printmaking day! This event is occurring in tandem with the upcoming print exhibition, The Art of the Big Print: Master Lancaster Printmakers, on view from April 14 - July 1, 2018. The exhibition features six master printmakers that live and work locally. All of these artists have created relief prints that are 30 x 40 inches on a piece of Baltic Birch wood that will then be printed on April 6th. The artists will also be joined by BIG INK's Lyell Castongua. The public is invited to come and experience this unusual activity of printing such large blocks as well as experience printmaking themselves.The prints that are made by the artists on April 6th will be included in the exhibition. The artists participating are; Milt Friedly, Jeff Geib, Matthew Lawrence, Robert Patierno, Gene Shaw, and Brant Schuller.

The opening reception for the exhibition will occur a week later on Friday April 13th from 5 - 8 PM.
