Art from Stone: Prints from the Tamarind Lithography Workshop, 1960-1970
Art from Stone: Prints from the Tamarind Lithography Workshop, 1960-1970 displays approximately 45 lithographs created at the legendary Tamarind Lithography Workshop during its formative years. This exhibition features the work of 26 West Coast artists, including examples by Clinton Adams, Richard Diebenkorn, Ynez Johnston, Ed Moses, Nathan Oliveira, Ed Ruscha, June Wayne, and Norman Zammitt.
The Tamarind Lithography Workshop is among the most celebrated lithographic workshops in the United States. Established in 1960, the Tamarind project was a response to the sharp decline in the number of active lithographic workshops across America and Europe. In addition to setting important technical standards, the Tamarind Lithography Workshop introduced hundreds of painters and sculptors to the methods and techniques of fine art lithography. Art from Stone is a focus on the prints produced at the workshop by artists who lived and worked on the West Coast.
