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.
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.
