From the masterful hands of Renaissance greats to today's contemporary artisans, the time-honored process of printmaking is still vibrant and proliferating in fine art form. Using the same tried-and-true methods, along with more modern techniques, local artists get a chance to display their own representations during the Orlando Museum of Art's (OMA's) 1st Thursdays event "Impressions: The Printmaker's Art," February 7, from 6 to 9pm.
Larry Camp Trio will perform a treasury of jazz expressions from classic to American Songbook, while Vital Flair serves some extra-scrumptious culinary fare. Stepping up to the mic for poetic interpretations is Logan Anderson and a selection of poets who have left their mark. Experience firsthand the craft behind printmaking with a demonstration by Whitney Broadaway. And be sure to view selected print works by André Smith, founder of The Research Studio [now Maitland Art Center]. Discover what's happening with the arts movement around Central Florida by visiting with representatives from Florida Artists Registry and Red Chair Project.
Café offerings, handcrafted beers, wine, soft drinks and water will be available for purchase throughout the evening.
Admission to 1st Thursdays is $10, always free for OMA Members, and includes admission to the OMA's featured exhibition Contemporary Glass Sculpture: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Studio Glass. Parking is free at Orlando Loch Haven Park; overflow parking is available at the Orlando Science Center parking garage. For more information, call 407 896 4231 x260, or visit www.OMArt.org.
