The Prints of Romare Bearden





Don't miss this upcoming print exhibition at
The Taft Museum of Art:

Impressions and Improvisations,
The Prints of Romare Bearden

 January 27 - April 29, 2012


"A twentieth-century master of
 collage and printmaking, Romare Bearden (1911–1988)
 was also arguably that century’s most influential
 African American artist. This is the first exhibition 
to focus on Bearden’s printmaking alone. 
It includes 75 vividly colored graphic works—etchings,
 engravings, aquatints, lithographs, 
collagraphs, screenprints, photo projections,
 and monotypes—all created over a span of thirty years.
 The exhibition also features some 
working print plates and proofs that
 reveal the artist’s creative process."

Printmaker April Foster, professor of
printmaking at the Art Academy of Cincinnati,

Friday, March 23 at 1:30 PM.
