Tamarind Turns 50

On the heels of my Chicago Printers Guild post, here's a tidbit from Sarah Hanley (at the excellent PBS Art:21 blog) about printmaking and the University of New Mexico's Tamarind Institute turning 50 this year. The traveling exhibit that occurs in conjunction with the anniversary looks like it will be quite good (including artists Vija Celmins, Kerry James Marshall, Philip Guston, Kiki Smith, Leon Golub, Jonathan Lasker, and Polly Apfelbaum).

Read the post here. A selection of new lithographs recently released from Tamarind follows (including some remarkably sweet prints from Laurent de Brunhoff... recognize the elephants?).
