Los de Abajo Printmaking Collective cordially invites the Southern California community to the inauguration of their new space and arts residency at the Social and Public Art Resource Center (S.P.A.R.C.). Refreshments and light appetizers will be served.

Several collaborative large scale prints and mixed media developed by the group will be on display as well as a selection of individual prints in techniques such as linocut, woodcut, drypoint, monotype and monoprint, etching and mixed media.

Our group is committed to the promotion of the printmaking arts through collective projects and collaborative pieces as well as workshops and exhibitions. We are also interested in pushing the boundaries of printmaking in order to explore new forms and techniques of expression within the medium. Our residency at S.P.A.R.C. will allow us to develop new ideas for collaborative projects as well as for individual experimentation.

This coming July, we will start offering printmaking workshops on Thursdays and Saturdays.
