Power of the Press: Prints and the People Who Make Them

Sunday | December 14, 2008
2:00 pm
Free with the cost of museum admission

Printmaking is a democratic art form that brings artists together and allows them to more effectively spread their ideas to the masses. Join representatives from the Los Angeles Printmaking Society, Self Help Graphics, and the Corita Art Center as they discuss how their organizations and the individuals within them have contributed to Los Angeles' unique art and activist landscape.

RSVP required. Please call 323.937.4230 x50 or email rsvp@cafam.org.

Small Print Fundraiser

Fun fundraiser? Sunday December 7th, from 1PM to 4PM kicks off our month long fundraiser. We are raising funds for the 20th National and our coming busy year.

LAPS is holding several fund raising events around our two Membership shows at LA Artcore Gallery and at CAFAM, Craft and Folk Art Musuem.

Members are encouraged to make small ART; just large enough to fit into a CD jewelcase. All donated art will be prominently displayed at the exhibition events.

Prints are 4.75" x 4.75" and any media of print ready for jewelcase are welcome!

These prints will help support the upcoming 20th National in October 2009. This will be a big year for printmaking in California. There are lots of opportunities for our members to participate. Join in the "fund"!

And don't forget to join us at LA ArtCore for the first official Jewel Case Fundraiser! Sunday, December 7th, from 1PM to 4PM.

From age to age...the crash of ruin fitfully resounds.
William Wordsworth

In their inherent aesthetic, emotional or inquisitive appeal, the vestiges of ruin and decay contain, for each of us, a certain level of fascination. A ruin, whether it is architectural, human or environmental, often triggers a stirring experience. These experiences can include the recognition of the uncomfortable signs of mortality or feelings of nostalgia. In its apparent familiarity, or unfamiliarity, a ruin often causes one to feel some level of comfort or discomfort, as one usually ends up confronting the nostalgia of what could have been or has not yet happened.
