New work from Art on the Press!

Over the past two weeks, the Wells College Art on the Press students endured a printmaking experience that has surely left a lasting impression! For the print-exchange assignment, students created imagery based around the theme “disguise” and carved their images from a high-quality Japanese wood, produced especially for printmaking.

The prints are reduction rather than multiple block prints, so a lot of planning and endless hours went in to the making of these prints. For nearly every student, the experience was a nightmare test of patience as they encountered and overcame a variety of problems with the medium or the printmaking process.

Despite the obstacles, the students of Art on the Press pulled through with some incredible work to show for the countless hours they spent at the presses.
