Including prints from the Swope collection as well as tools on loan from printmaking vendors, Print Shop/Screenprint focuses on the various techniques of screen printing, from hand drawn and cut stencils to photographic emmulsion. Visitors will be able to learn about the history, technique, and processes of screen print while viewing a wide variety of work from the Swope collection, brought together exclusively for this exhibition.

Print Shop/Screenprint is the fourth and final exhibition in this series, curated by Collections Manager Stephanie Standish, which showcases the four basic printmaking techniques; relief, intaglio, lithograph and screen print. This series is designed to give viewers a stepping stool into the somewhat intimidating world of printmaking, whether as a buyer, artist or viewer.
