New York-based Curator Margaret Mathews-Berenson presents the last of her tri-fold series of exhibitions mined from the RAM Permanent Collection. A slight departure from her previous two exhibitions, which focused on the subject matter-derived themes of Landscape and Portraiture, IN-PRINT highlights works that are characterized by a diverse artistic medium: the Print. Originating in 5th century China with the advent of woodblock printing, Printmaking has experienced dramatic developments since its birth. Displaying prime examples of such print techniques as: woodblock carving, engraving, etching, monotype, silkscreen, and lithography, IN-PRINT is host to centuries of print culture and experimentation.  From 16th century ornamental engravings by Daniel Hopfer, to 19th century Will Bradley lithographs and contemporary sculptural pieces utilizing print elements by Brian Eno, Yinka Shonibare, and Robert Lazzarini, IN-PRINT offers a sweeping glance at a rich and ever-evolving scope of art-making.

As with the previous two exhibitions, IN-PRINT also presents the fruits of a collaborative internship project with Creative Writing and Art History students from UC Riverside, La Sierra University, and Cal State San Bernardino. These eight gifted individuals worked alongside Curator Margaret-Mathews Berenson to produce an on-demand book featuring selected images from the exhibition paired with original poems and writings by the students, responding to specific works. Copies of the book will be available for sale and work to support RAM programming and exhibitions.
