Relief prints are original works of art created through a process that picks up ink from the raised portions of master printing plates. Common types of relief prints include woodcuts, linocuts (linoleum prints), and collographs. The 30 works in this exhibit come from the collection of the Print Consortium. They reveal a range of approaches and artistic sensibilities by some of today's finest relief printmakers, working in both black and white and full-color images.
The Print Consortium is an international coalition of printmaking artists from the United States and nine foreign countries dedicated to the promotion and preservation of printmaking as an art form. Established in 1983, the Consortium provides print exhibits assembled from an inventory of more than 1,000 works created by more than 300 artists in the group.
