The Prints of Lake Effect Editions at Syracuse University
August 1 through November 9, 2017
The Prints of Lake Effect Editions at Syracuse University celebrates 10 years of printmaking with a selection of work created by a long list of young artists who have worked at the Syracuse University printmaking studio. Lake Effect Editions is a press entity at Syracuse University that publishes works by visiting artists invited by the Printmaking professors to work with undergraduate and graduate students each semester. These visiting artists will typically give a public lecture, give critiques to the students they work with, and create an edition of prints with the students, faculty and staff. Through this engagement with a working artist, Lake Effect and its guiding professors, Dusty Herbig and Holly Greenberg, hope to give students the opportunity to work directly with master print artists from both the academic and professional print worlds, to create fine, hand-pulled editions of works on paper. Students work side by side with the visiting artists who share their knowledge of printmaking and the tricks and techniques not taught as part of the regular curriculum in the printmaking intensive, a part of the studio arts programs in the School of Art.
