College to show world's nontoxic prints display

"Print is Print," an international exchange portfolio of nontoxic prints, will hang in the College Gallery at Western Nevada Community College Bristlecone Building through Feb. 16. This purpose of this exhibit, representing the work of 20 different artists from seven countries, is to expand safer print-making practices.

In "Print is Print," all of the artists have adopted contemporary, safer printmaking methods in place of traditional, more toxic processes.

The portfolio includes both color and black-and-white prints produced on archival paper. Much of the paper used was Hahnemuhle Copperplate, donated by Atlantic Papers of Ivyland, Pa.

All artists attended Keith Howard's nontoxic summer print workshops at the Canadian School for Non-toxic Printmaking in Alberta, Canada.
