The Proof is in The Prints: Cuesta College Student Printmakers

Exhibits // The Proof is in The Prints: Cuesta College Student Printmakers

Jun 7 - Jun 30

Overview // The exhibit, entitled The Proof Is in the Prints: A Retrospective Exhibition of Cuesta College Student Printmakers, is sponsored by the Central Coast Printmakers group and aims to showcase the high quality of traditional printmaking produced each year through Cuesta College’s art program.

Each June, the Central Coast Printmakers and The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art sponsor a juried exhibition of current Cuesta College student prints. The etchings on view in the McMeen Gallery this year have been culled from program instructor Leslie Sutcliffe’s collection of over three hundred of these etchings. The quality of the work attests to the strength of the art department at Cuesta College and the caliber of its students.

Cuesta College has had a printmaking program for more than forty of its fifty years. The program was started by Bob Pelfrey and, for the last twenty-five years, has been led by Leslie Sutcliffe. The sustained excellence of the program is due in no small part to the support of the Central Coast Printmakers.

Details // A reception and opportunity to meet members of the printmakers group will take place on Friday, June 7, from 6–9 pm, in conjunction with Art After Dark.
