Alison Saar In Print

Exhibition Website

Jun 10 2016 - Oct 2 2016

Alison  Saar (b. 1956, Los Angeles) uses dynamic printmaking techniques to explore feminine, racial, and cultural themes. The artist’s hand-wrought woodcuts combine strong color and bold forms.

Her central figures hold evocative objects—snakes, knives, fry pans, plants, or bottles—which allude to a range of myth, lore, and legend. Drawn from NMWA’s collection as well as private collections, the exhibition also examines how Saar’s printmaking practice relates to her sculptural work.
