This exhibition of 50 American prints surveys the activities of artists who put designs on paper during an exciting 50-year period from the 1930s to the 1980s.

Especially significant during this period are the contributions of women printmakers, as well as the impact of African American artists on the graphic arts.

Pulled, Pressed and Screened: Important American Prints is drawn from the Syracuse University Art Collection.

Includes prints by: Thomas Hart Benton, Grant Wood, Anne Ryan, Milton Avery, Dorothy Dehner, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Robert Motherwell and Richard Estes, among others.

Works by Betty Blessin + Laurie Merritt will also be on display in the Lynwood Aritsts Gallery.
