Wednesday evening, AAU Galleries were packed with enthusiastic art lovers, all taking in the latest and greatest works from printmaking artists. With so much great artwork, it’s no surprise that enthusiasm was high, but the degree of discussion between artists and newcomers to the field of printmaking was refreshing to witness. Artists were on hand to discuss and introduce their concepts, materials, and processes, in addition to having a conference kick-off celebration. For those who missed it, here are a few photos of the festivities.

Show runs through Saturday March 29th, so be sure to stop by The Atelier and Cannery Galleries before this amazing exhibition goes away.
