Animation + Printmaking

The  Animation + Printmaking Showcase was organized as part of Flux; Southern Graphics Council International Conference.

The artists responded to an SGCI call for entries for short animated films created through printmaking processes: wood cut, letterpress, etching, silkscreen, rubber stamps, stencils, etc.  Over 55 submissions were received from all over the world and 33 were selected for this showcase. The films span the entire range of print techniques and also give some new voices to the world of animation. Organizers Marilyn Zornado and Barb Tetenbaum will also be screening their latest collaborative pressure-printed animation "French Film".


This exhibition was organized by Marilyn Zornado, independent animator and instructor, Pacific Northwest College of Art and Oregon College of Art and Craft; and Barbara Tetenbaum, artist, printer and head of the department of Book and Print, Oregon College of Art and Craft; with assistance from Cris Moss, director and curator of White Box.
