The Prints of Lake Effect Editions at Syracuse University

Aug 01 – Nov 09, 2017
On view at the Palitz Gallery in New York City, this exhibition celebrates 10 years of printmaking in the School of Art’s printmaking studio.

The Prints of Lake Effect Editions at Syracuse University celebrates 10 years of printmaking with a selection of work created by a long list of young artists who have worked at the Syracuse University printmaking studio in the College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA). Lake Effect Editions is a press entity at the University that publishes works by visiting artists invited by the printmaking professors to work with undergraduate and graduate students each semester. These visiting artists will typically give a public lecture; give critiques to the students they work with; and create an edition of prints with the students, faculty, and staff. Through this engagement with a working artist, Lake Effect and its guiding professors, Dusty Herbig and Holly Greenberg, hope to give students the opportunity to work directly with master print artists from both the academic and professional print worlds to create fine, hand-pulled editions of works on paper. Students work side by side with the visiting artists who share their knowledge of printmaking and the tricks and techniques not taught as part of the regular curriculum in the printmaking intensive, a part of the studio arts programs in VPA’s School of Art.
