For The Review, Tidings
The Arts Council of Lake Oswego will present New Prints by Print Arts Northwest, an exhibition opening April 1 at 510 Museum & ARTspace, 510 First St. in Lake Oswego.
The free exhibition features work of selected members of PAN. The show opens with a reception from 5-7 p.m. April 1 and continues through April 29. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and by appointment.
This exhibition will feature works specifically made in 2015 and 2016.
Hot off the press you might say, said Jan Fowler, a Lake Oswego resident and printmaker who worked with the Arts Council to organization the exhibition.
PANs mission is to support contemporary fine art printmaking, and through educational programs and exhibitions, the nonprofit group seeks to advocate for the creation, appreciation and collection of original prints. This exhibition exemplifies that effort.
Some of the prints have not been exhibited publicly prior to this display, said Lori Goldstein, program manager for the Arts Council. Its always exciting to provide a space for artists to display their newest works for the first time.
The Arts Council is an exhibiting gallery for Print Arts Northwest during the Southern Graphics Conference International taking place in Portland March 30 through April 2. Organizers estimate the conference will bring more than 1,800 printmakers and students to the area. Goldstein encourages the public to stop by 510 Museum & ARTspace to learn more about the vast world of printmaking that is such a vibrant part of the contemporary arts scene.
