Visiting artist April Vollmer will give presentation on Japanese printmaking

Join the Ulrich Museum of Art at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 4 in the Beren Gallery for a presentation from April Vollmer titled, “Looking Forward-The continuing relevance of Japanese printmaking.”

Vollmer’s presentation is a short overview of the Japanese “mokuhanga” printing technique and its history. She will connect it with contemporary use and use in her own art, with an emphasis on how the work is made. She will speak about how learning this flexible technique has affected her as an artist, and has inspired a community of creative artists who now keep in touch with exhibitions and triennial conferences. A reception will be held starting at 5:30 p.m.
