In Conversation: Connecting Painting and Printmaking

In Conversation: Connecting Painting and Printmaking

with artist Polly Apfelbaum and art historian Faye Hirsch

Since 1946, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture has brought together diverse and talented groups of artists for concentrated periods of artistic creation, interaction, and growth. In the spirit of the discursive environment of Skowhegan's rural Maine campus, artist Polly Apfelbaum (Skowhegan resident faculty, 1999) and art historian Faye Hirsch will engage in a conversation inspired by the PMA exhibition Skowhegan at Seventy. Join us in exploring how the printmaking process sparks a spirit of inquiry and experimentation in the studio, and delve into the intersection between printmaking and painting in contemporary practice.

$8 general public, free for members and Skowhegan School alumni
