Silk Screenings is a collection of prints from our eponymous silk-screening program, wherein the theme of “inspiration” took on many colorful and creative forms. The artists—some of whom were first time practitioners of this form of printmaking—were challenged to brainstorm and gather inspiration from all aspects of their lives including, but not limited to, dreams, nature, emotions, memory, and imagination. Each print was carefully made with layers of tracing paper, stencils, and many weeks of work developing compositions. Through the thoughtful and meticulous practice of silk screening, the artists made material their greatest inspirations.
