Mo'Print presses on with Printmakers 4 at Niza Knoll Gallery
The Month of Printmaking, aka Mo'Print 2014, continues this weekend with a variety of events, including tonight's opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. at Niza Knoll Gallery for Printmakers 4. The exhibit features works representing the diversity of printmaking techniques -- from woodcut and monoprint to intaglio and even a sculpture with printed surfaces -- by artists Rachel Basye, Dennis Dalton, Maria Fleming and Pat Orban. A selection of images follows with Knoll's gallery notes; see Printmakers 4 through April 26.
