Opening July 25 through Sept. 20, 2009

Bobby Seale-woodcut
Frank Rowe 1921-1985
Collection of the Rowe Family Estate

The story of the development of the relief print in California carries with it the story of California. The technique formed the
basis of several distinctive art movements. And the technique was associated with several cultural movements as well.
Women gained a powerful and early voice in this media, as did the Labor movement and Latino artists. Several of the works on view are from the Saint Mary's College Collection.

Among the artists represented are Robert Arneson, Richard Correll, Antonio Fransconi, Juan Fuentes, Ricardo Garcia, Louise Gilbert, Helen Hyde, Pedro de Lemos, Bertha Lum, Chiura Obata, Elizabeth Norton, San Quentin Artists in Corrections, Charles Surrendorf, Wayne Thiebaud, and William Wolff.
