March 11 – April 23, 2018
Regional Collective features artwork by members of the California Society of Printmakers, selected by Leslie Jones, Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Participating artists will be announced by the first week in January.
The California Society of Printmakers is one of the national historic printmakers collectives that is still a vital force in contemporary printmaking. Printmaking has long been associated with community whether it be a university setting, a local collective, or in this case, regional support. The sharing and appreciation of this graphic form through associations fosters ongoing support for the market, interest, development and appreciation of its historic nature to communicate visually by its broad based multiple original nature. Janet Turner herself received support for her continuing career by membership in the regional organizations she joined and they presently continue to foster new generations of printmakers.
