When 2:00pm - 4:00pm
CIA’s Printmaking Department, in conjunction with Verne Collection: A Gallery of Japanese Prints and Paintings, will be hosting internationally exhibited printmaker Katsunori Hamanishi for a demonstration of his mezzotint technique on Sunday, July 27, from 2-4pm, in the new printmaking studios in CIA’s Joseph McCullough Center for the Visual Arts, 11610 Euclid Avenue. A reception will follow the demonstration.
According to the Verne gallery, Hamanishi “is an ‘artist’s artist’ because when other printmakers look at his fastidious and detailed work they are left in awe.” Hamanishi had an exhibition at The Smithsonian in 2012 and a solo show at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013. His work is in the collections of Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, The British Museum, Hokkaido Museum of Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, Cleveland Museum of Art , The Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, and the Library of Congress.
