Printing in Color

October 1, 2007 - December 16, 2007

In the fall of 2007, Hawn gallery visitors were treated to a special exhibit designed to support the Meadows Art History Curriculum.  The gallery was set up to display original color prints from the Bywaters Special Collection along side the original carved blocks or matrices used to create them.  The students of ARHS 3364: History and Theory of Prints had assignments coordinated to the exhibit which highlighted some of the techniques and developments of this art form.  The featured prints were selected by Dr. Lisa Pon with the assistance of Sam Ratcliffe and Ellen Niewyk, curators of the Bywaters collection.
