Javier Carrillo, director of the Sam Francis Print Studio at Art Division, is curator of the exhibition with assistance from Victor Reyes. Prints made by Art Division students will be shown along with work by three acclaimed artists Roger Herman, Fernando Sandoval, and John Nava who have taught at Art Division over the years.
Under Javier’s direction the Print shop at Art Division has become a vibrant center of creativity and community. It opened in 2010 with supervision from Master printer Fernando Sandoval from Taller Sangfer, Oaxaca, who worked tirelessly with Javier to set up the etching press. Over the years Javier has developed an array of etching, mezzotint and dry-point techniques that do not require toxic materials. He has also taught students to make reductive linoleum prints, a technique similar to Japanese wood block.
