Reception: April 27th, 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. | Experimentum is an experimental print collection created by UA advanced printmakers through a variety of different print mediums including relief, intaglio, monoprinting, and more. Originally developed and used to efficiently create patterns, editions, and reproductions, printmaking processes traditionally require printmakers to be strict and consistent in technique. However, when explored and experimented with, the diverse family of printmaking techniques provides artists with an incredibly wide breadth of options for creating imagery, including many that are not possible in other artistic mediums. The artists in Experimentum are creating original imagery and artworks by individually exploring, embracing, and utilizing the complexity and beauty of print media.
