Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Arts Center will present a Lorain County Printmakers Exhibition Thursday, November 2 to Friday, December 8. The show features five artists who have made their mark in Lorain County. An artists’ reception will be held on Thursday, November 2 from 3-7 p.m. in the Beth K. Stocker Art Gallery.
The printmakers include well-known influencers and teachers Paul Arnold, David Jansheski and Mary Owen Rosenthal, and the exhibit acts as a tribute honoring their legacies. The show also features the woodblock prints of Claudio Orso and etchings by Sean Crum, who teaches at LCCC and other locations in Lorain County.
Highlights include masterful woodblock prints from Arnold, formerly from Oberlin; lush mixed-media prints by Jansheski, formerly of Avon Lake; woodblock prints by Rosenthal, formerly of Oberlin; bold woodblock prints by Orso of Oberlin; and etchings by Crum of Avon Lake.
A portion of this exhibition will travel to Zygote Press in Cleveland in the spring. Stocker Arts Center would like to thank Liz Maugins of Zygote Press, Kemper Arnold, Peg Arnold, Danielle Locke of the Community Foundation of Lorain County, Mike Morgenstern and Matt Morgenstern.
