Los Angeles Printmaking Society sponsored reception:
Friday, April 2, 2010, 5:00 - 6:30pm
Israeli Orit Hofshi is a participating artist in Philagrafika 2010: The Graphic Unconscious in Philadelphia, where she studied in the late 80's at the Pennsylvania Academy of Art. Hofshi works by hand on very large scale images yet achieves monumentality while retaining an intimate quality in her prints. She creates varied horizontal and vertical matrices with the panels, adding to or subtracting from the grid as she works on the image. Sometimes she integrates the yet-to-be-printed matrix as part of the work, displaying the wooden boards adjacent to the prints. Read more in this article from Art on Paper in 2008.
This is an opportunity to see Orit's prints and her talk about this work and her life in Israel. Please join LAPS in welcoming this unique artist to Los Angeles.
Free parking on Washington Boulevard during reception.
