The show walks the viewer through the primary printmaking techniques from lithography, mezzotint, engraving and woodcuts to linocuts, pochoirs, and carborundum etching with interactive demonstrations. The show features an exceptoinal display of 50 plus rare and iconic prints by Picasso, Chagall, Miro, Dali, Matisse, Braque, Matta, and Motherwell, as well as printmaking tools from the California College of Art, and printmaking machinery from the International Printing Museum.

Also on exhibition from April 13 through July 14, 2019: Laurie Shelton’s “Cows” in the Spotlight Gallery. Painter Laurie Shelton is a longtime Napa Valley resident whose paintings of farm animals are highly prized from St. Helena to Palo Alto to Paris. Having lost her husband to brain cancer, the image of a cow became the vehicle for her to work through her emotions.

This exhibition will include new works as well as a “cattle roundup” of works from the private collections of her fans.
