February 4 - 28
The international exhibition “Contemporary Printmaking in Oaxaca” showcases the original artwork of 27 artists from Oaxaca, Mexico, South Africa, Chile, Canada, and the United States who create together at the renowned Rufino Tamayo Studio in Oaxaca, Mexico. The overall theme is “Consciousness” which also includes themes of freedom, social justice, immigration, identity and place, the environment, and what it means to be Oaxacan. Curated by Abigail Merickel, the show includes the artists' texts describing their work in both Spanish and English. A beautiful art catalog including essays is also available. Exhibition generously funded by Marylee Hattenhauer. The Wasco County Cultural Trust Coalition generously supported the publication of the exhibition catalog.
