Panel Discussion: "The Changing Nature of Printmaking Today"

As part of the exhibition Printmaking: Breaking Boundaries at the Portland Public Library, there will be a panel discussion titled "The Changing Nature of Printmaking Today" at the library in Rines Auditorium, on Saturday, January 19 at 2 pm. The Portland Public Library is located at 5 Monument Square, Portland, Maine.

The panel will include three of the artists in the exhibition -- Karen Adrienne, Adriane Herman, and Damir Porobic. Karen Adrienne is professor of art at the University of Maine at Augusta, where she teaches printmaking and drawing. She is founder of ARTDOGS Studios in Gardiner. Adriane Herman is an associate professor at Maine College of Art and is represented by Western Exhibitions in Chicago. Her work has been in many exhibitions, including a solo exhibition at CMCA. Damir Porobic is an interdisciplinary artist, master printmaker, and a printmaking and new media art instructor at the University of Southern Maine. All three artists are deeply involved in the printmaking world and should provide an informative and thought-provoking discussion about the state of printmaking in Maine today and where it might be headed.

Admission is free and open to all.
