At the Tone the Time Will Be . . .
Click here for the website and listings of panels, exhibits and performances that are part of the exhbition.
Just a week ago, I went to the Norton Simon and saw "Proof: The Rise of Printmaking in Southern California. It includes work by artist's Ed Moses, Ken Price, Larry Rivers, Ed Ruscha, (yes, Michael F. Ed, Ruscha).
I was particularly interested in learning about the artists who came out of the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Hollywood run by a woman named June Wayne who just passed away last year at 93.
The workshop's goal was to revive the art of lithography by creating "a pool of master artisan-printers in the U.S." What it ultiamtely did was both create a community and spark a renaissance.
Check it out if you make your way to the San Gabriel Valley.
