UPCOMING PRINT SHOWS

BETWEEN THE LINES AT SAN FRANCISCO STATE UNIVERSITY MARTIN WONG GALLERY

April 23, 2019 – April 27, 2019

 

Between the Lines is on view at San Francisco State University’s Martin Wong Gallery from April 23 – April 27, 2019, in conjunction with the California Society of Printmakers’ Annual Meeting on April 27th. The juror for the exhibition is this year’s keynote speaker, master printer Lothar Osterburg. Osterburg states that in addition to a good or unusual use of technique, the work in Between the Lines features content that arouses the viewer’s curiosity. The annual meeting will start off with a reception for the show from 10:00-10:30am. The exhibition will remain open throughout the day, until 3pm. In addition to his keynote lecture, which is open to the public, Osterburg will also give a demonstration. Tickets for the demo are available here.

 

Featuring work by Myrtle Press members Dixie Laws and Joanna Kidd.
