The Graphic Arts Workshop has been a hotbed of fine art printmaking in San Francisco since 1954, and is opening its doors during the first weekend in November as part of San Francisco’s Open Studios
In contrast to today’s world of technology, many of the techniques used at GAW are centuries-old, although most have modern (and less toxic) refinements. They include etching, woodcut, linocut, letterpress, monotype and monoprint, lithograph, screenprint, and endless combinations and variations.
A wide variety of prints of many types and price-points will be on display and available for purchase.
In addition to seeing the art and hanging out with the artists, this is a great opportunity to get an inside look at a working fine art printmaking studio, and find out how etchings and other prints are created.
Participating artists: Lise Currie, Eddie Lee, Cynthia Milionis, Gail Morrison, Andrey Semyonov and Barbara Stikker.
