All three winners studied printmaking with Siu and Don Zimmerman, teachers of a popular printmaking class through the Center for Lifelong Learning of SBCC. Virginia Furmanski is a former art therapist and founder of the Inkspots, a printmaking group in Ventura; Edward Rogers and Karen Schroeder live in Santa Barbara.

The Santa Barbara Printmakers’ popular annual exhibition features distinctive handpulled prints made using traditional techniques (linocut, woodcut, serigraph, etching, lithograph, collagraph, monoprint and monotype) and contemporary techniques (digital editing and photopolymer etching).

The group includes established and emerging artists who work with an amazing diversity of styles, skills, and engaging subject matter. This unique display of affordable works on paper provides a lively viewing experience for all ages and arrived just in time for holiday shopping!

Santa Barbara Printmakers is an all-volunteer organization supported through dues and the efforts of its members. For more information, please visit: sbprintmakers.com
