Artemio Rodriguez: Tradition and Modernity in Printmaking
As a printmaker who works primarily in black and white, Rodríguez’s signature style emphasizes simplicity and clarity. European medieval woodcuts and the great Mexican print artists such as Jose Guadalupe Posada have been influential in Rodríguez’s printmaking career. In 2002 he founded La Mano Press, an artist-run center dedicated to the promotion and appreciation of printmaking, in Los Angeles California. This exhibition is in partnership with the Tonantzin Society.
Opening reception September 27, 5 to 9 pm
Closing reception October 19, 6 to 8 pm
The Tonantzin Society and Artemio Rodriguez came into partnership by way of the Mulvane Art Museum and the Beach Museum. Rodriguez was part of the Beach Museum’s ‘Fronteras’ exhibit in 2017 and the Society was intrigued by his printmaking work and the traveling ‘Grafico Movil.’ Rodriguez at this same time was seeking to raise money for his community-based Biblioteca del Libro Ilustrado (Library of Illustrated Books) located in Patzcuaro, Mexico. The Tonantzin Society jumped at the chance to work with Artemio.
