ARTISTS' RECEPTION  FEBRUARY 24  5:00 - 7:00 PM

Engraving is one of the oldest art forms. Engraved designs have been found on prehistoric bones, stones, and cave walls. The technique of duplicating images goes back several thousand years to the Sumerians (c. 3000 BCE), who engraved designs and cuneiform inscriptions on cylinder seals (usually made of stone), which, when rolled over soft clay tablets, left relief impressions. They conceived not only the idea of multiplication but also the mechanical principle, the roller, which in more sophisticated form became the printing press. This exhibit will highlight Printmaking in various methods including: Intaglio (engraving etching, drypoint, aquatint and mezzotint), Planographic (lithograph), Relief (woodcut, linocut and embossing), Stencil (serigraph or silkscreen), Monoprint and Paper Cutting (Scherenschnitte.)
