a-printmaking

Ambos Galeria will host two printmaking demonstratios on Friday February 8 and 22 at 8 pm, in conjunction with their current art show Vida y Silencio, and the Friday night Southside Shuffle.

All of the five artists represented in the exhibition know each other  through their commitment to the art media of etching, lithograph and monoprint. Petru Voichescu will lead the demonstration along with master printmaker Ireri Topete, who heads up the Printmaking Workshop at the Rio Cuale Art Center. Voichescu believes the art of printmaking is a synthesis of drawing, painting and sculpture that allows him to realize his imagination and talents. Ireri‚Äôs workshop at the printshop on Isla del Rio Cuale has provided other artists a place to learn and produce. Marcela Bernal has been motivated to build La Marea, her own workshop and venue for classes in drawing, painting and printmaking. Zina Sirutis moved from a career in New York and San Francisco in Communication and Advertising Arts to working and producing joyful prints and paintings here in Vallarta. Zunik Sauret is an internationally acclaimed printmaker based in Mexico City who has offered several workshops there.

The Printmaking Demonstrations will be held for the next two Friday night Southside Shuffles. Galeria Ambos is located at Basilio Badillo 261, Emiliano Zapata.
