Printmaking with Kevin Garber
Master printmaker Kevin Garber recently held a workshop here at the Museum's boat shop last week, demonstrating and discussing the proper techniques for duplicating a print from an early 1960s Philip McMartin wood cut of the early 1960s. Garber's works can be found in the Kemper Art Museum and Island Press at Washington University as well as in collections throughout the country, including the Whitney Art Museum in New York City. Garber's work can also be found in the Museum's new exhibit "Push and Pull: Life on Chesapeake Bay Tugboats."
