Women and Print: A Contemporary View
August 30 – October 19, 2014
Scripps College starts off its year of exhibitions with Women and Print: A Contemporary View, the fifth in a series dedicated to outstanding women artists.
Identity, nature, and science predominate in this exhibition of contemporary printmaking. Through these themes, Women in Print investigates the art of the print. National in scope, the exhibition features 66 works by 27 artists, showcasing leading women printmakers who are working in new ways, often combining traditional and digital processes to produce hybrid prints with fresh expressive dimensions. Together, these works reveal the strength of work produced by women printmakers today.
