We are uniquely devoted to hosting gallery shows of fine art printmaking and works on paper. Receptions accompany each art opening and provide an opportunity to meet with the artist. Expressions Graphics emphasizes traditional printing methods including monotype, etching and intaglio, silk screen and wood block through classes, exhibitions, and demonstrations. Classes are offered in our studio, which has three printing presses for both members and students to use. Our members and students practice various printing methods to explore different themes through works on paper. The gallery offers members and students the opportunity to share these ideas with others at themed exhibitions throughout the year as well as a print exchange. In addition, each year we invite visiting artists who provide free demonstrations and workshops that are open to all.
