Art Center’s Transferring Ink 3 show features printmaking


Thursday, July 10th, 2014
Issue 28, Volume 18.


FALLBROOK – A wonderful, new art exhibition opened on June 28 at the Fallbrook Art Center with over 200 people attending from across the region. Transferring Ink 3 is an international juried show of fine art prints created and submitted by 53 outstanding printmakers from New York, Vermont, Massachusetts, Colorado, Texas, Georgia, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Montana, California, and the Bahamas.

Fallbrook’s Blue Heron Gallery has loaned some historic pieces for the exhibition including works by Edouard Manet and Grant Wood.

The show juror is the renowned printmaker and instructor Ron Pokrasso, who currently resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Pokrasso has an MFA from Pratt, with over 40 solo shows and participation in over 150 group shows. He has a show within a show at the exhibition with 15 works that use various forms of printmaking as tools rather than as ends in themselves. Often his prints are the basis for works that continue as paintings, collages, and assemblages.

printmaking had to be the major element in each piece of art. The 88 works Pokrasso selected for this exhibition were chosen to show both technical expertise and an emphasis on the continuation of printmaking as a vital tool for art making on all levels. Works in the show consist of a wide variety of printmaking techniques: woodcut, linocut, chine collé, etching, relief, stencil, lithography, serigraphy, monotype and intaglio among others.

To see a show of merit, with an extremely high caliber of submissions, visit Transferring Ink 3. To see all the works in the show, visit the online catalog at www.fallbrookartcenter.org.
