The Art of Printmaking: Global and Historical Approaches examines printmaking methods throughout history, from early methods of woodblock printing to contemporary photomechanical techniques. Variety in printing methods have allowed artists to experiment with nuanced techniques for the transmission of their images and to display artistic virtuosity, as is evident in Durer’s engravings and Rembrandt’s etchings.
Curated by Erin Mancini (class of 2021), this exhibition is a culmination of her yearlong art history honors project and is partially funded by SCICU (the South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities) summer undergraduate research grant in 2020. Several prints on view in the galleries have been generously lent to this exhibition by the Museum & Gallery at Bob Jones University in Greenville, S.C., and the Georgia Museum of art in Athens, Ga.
