PRINTMAKING
Engraving, etching, lithography, woodcuts, linocuts, and screen-printing all fall into the category of printmaking. Prints are images transferred onto a final framework rather than being created uniquely and directly by the artist; however, printmaking offers the advantage of allowing the final image to be easily reproduced as many times as desired. Explore the reaches of reproducible art in our collection of printmaking exhibitions.
