Master of the Woodcut: New Mexico Artist Anthony Lazorko

Exhibits // Master of the Woodcut: New Mexico Artist Anthony Lazorko

Mar 6 - Apr 19

Overview //


New Mexico artist, Anthony Lazorko, captures the spirit of America in his textured, multicolor woodcut prints. His work will be on view in an exhibition entitled Master of the Woodcut at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art from March 6 to April 19, 2015.



Mr. Lazorko graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1960. There he studied drawing, oil painting and printmaking before moving on to make a career in commercial art in Philadelphia and St. Louis. After over 40 years in newspapers, Mr. Larzorko retired as Art Director of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in 2000 and returned to his true love—printmaking. He has been making art all along since completing his fine arts education. Retirement and an empty nest have allowed him to concentrate his energies on his creative endeavors. In Mr. Lazorko’s words, “The focus of my work has always been to depict something about the American experience, no matter how ordinary, and to say it in an aesthetic manner with tactile surfaces, color and composition.” His vivid, textural, multi block woodcut prints do this quite well.
