Landfall Press: Five Decades of Printmaking celebrates the history and innovation behind one of America’s most renowned printers-publishers on the occasion of its fiftieth anniversary year. Founded in 1970 by Jack Lemon, in Chicago, Landfall Press has cultivated a uniquely collaborative environment and produced work for many artists at different points in their career. The press has operated out of Santa Fe, New Mexico, since 2004. The exhibition features approximately 100 editioned prints and printmaking materials from the Museum’s Landfall Press Archive, established in 1992, and reveals the various and often complex processes that go into printmaking at Landfall.
Anchor Graphics was a not-for-profit fine art press that brought together, under professional guidance, a diverse community of youth, emerging and established artists, and the public to advance the fine art of printmaking by integrating education with the creation of prints. The press was founded by David Jones and Marilyn Propp, and later became a program of the Art and Art Design department within Columbia College Chicago’s School of Fine and Performing Arts in 2006 and continued its mission within the college until 2015.
