de la mano: traditions and innovations in los angeles printmaking

23 Aug

I’m super excited to announce an upcoming exhibition about La Mano Press at the Bakersfield Museum of Art opening December 8th.

It’s my first independent curatorial project and features the work of some of the l.a. based artists who have collaborated with Artemio Rodriguez and Silvia Capistran, co-founders of LMP, for the last 9 years.

As most of you know, Artemio and Silvia relocated to Michoacan Mexico a few years ago, leaving behind years of working with the L.A. community in order to promote the art of printmaking.

The exhibition includes woodcuts, intaglio prints and serigraphs on paper, gesso transfers on wood, installation work, sculptures and video.

Artists are: Silvia Capistran, Dolores Carlos, Miles Grobman, Maria Guadalupe, Diego Guerrero, Rogelio Gutierrez, Jose Hernandez, Gabriela Martinez, Stephanie Mercado, John E. Miner, Laura E. Nieto, Artemio Rodriguez, Sonia Romero and Ernesto Vazquez.

More info as the show approaches.

In the meantime, check out the exhibition I curated using the Permanent Collection at the Museum of Latin American Art titled “The Good, The Bad, The Ugly?: Selections from MOLAA’s Permanent Collection” Info at
