Re: Collagraph



If you are in the Salem Oregon area there is an interesting collagraph
exhibit at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art on the Willamette U. campus. I
can't remember the artist's name - he supposedly pioneered the technique and
they have the first collagraph print he and his students pulled as well as
several original plates diplayed with their prints.

They have a wonderful print study room also.

Best wishes,
