An overview of Garo Antreasian’s experimentation with commercial materials and methods and his role as the original Tamarind’s first technical director.

This exhibition presents an overview of Garo Antreasian's innovations as a printmaker. Centering on his Tamarind production, including prints made with Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles during its first year, this exhibition explores Antreasian's contributions to printmaking techniques and standards, his experimentation with commercial materials and methods, and his role as Tamarind's first technical director. Tracing six decades of work, this exhibition will draw extensively from the Tamarind archive, photographs and letters from this period, and the artist's own writings. Garo Antreasian is integral to the history of Tamarind as an international training ground for printers, and he is central to the story of contemporary art in New Mexico, having established the University of New Mexico as a center of printmaking.

Tamarind Institute will keep Garo Antreasian: Innovation in Print in the gallery through Mach 10, 2017. The exhibition was originally scheduled to close January 27, but because of its popularity, Tamarind has decided to extend its run.
