Join us for an artist reception from 4:30 to 7 p.m., Thursday, April 7, in honor of the Sev Shoon print arts exhibition at City Hall.
Seattle printmaking hot spot Sev Shoon Arts Center fills Seattle City Hall with an exhibition of more than 30 artworks by 10 Northwest artists. Sev Shoon: 20 Years of Printing runs through April 18 and features a variety of modern and ancient techniques including monotype, monoprint, etching on copper, chine-collé, aquatint, engraving, relief, silkscreen, moku hanga and collagraph.
Featured artists are: Betsy Barnum, Barbara Bruch, Dionne Haroutunian, Amanda Knowles, Francesca Lohmann, Kelda Martensen, Elizabeth McDonald, Theresa Neinas, Nate Strottrup and Kathryn Trigg.
Founded in 1991 by Swiss artist Dionne Haroutunian, Sev Shoon Arts Center is dedicated to the art of printmaking. With a core group of 20 members, the center also serves students and short-term visiting artists. The center provides around-the-clock access to a professional print studio, classes, workshops and exhibitions. Sev Shoon is open to the public during the monthly Ballard Artwalk, when members present hands-on demonstrations.

Hope the event went well, glad to see some of the old printing techniques being used, I started using hot metal type / screen printing long before computers were easy accessible.
