Steamroller Printmaking at OTIS College of Art and Design

Otis Steamroller Printmaking Festival ( a.k.a. Big Ass Prints) was a big success. A full day of steamroll printing had students and local artists busy filling the parking lot with large prints. Special thanks to Nancy J. Haselbacher and Linda Dare and to the exceptional Otis Print Lab, Maggie White Lomeli and Kim Alexander. Also thanks for  inspiration and practical tips from our visiting artist, Sean Starwars! See Photos Here!

Bearing Witness: Daniel Heyman

January 15 – March 13, 2011

Laband Art Gallery presents the first West Coast exhibition of portraits by Daniel Heyman. Featuring portraits of individuals who have endured great personal hardship – former Abu Ghraib detainees, African American fathers who have been in and out of jail, and new immigrants to the United States, Heyman incorporates the subject’s own words into his compositions. Robin Wagner-Pacifici writes, “in doing so, [Heyman’s] portraits restore dignity and individuality to those who have been deprived of their most basic human rights.”
