K-State Pussycat Press printmaking event tonight at the Beach Museum of Art
The Pussycat Press will hold its annual printmaking event and fundraiser from 5-7 p.m. Friday, April 25, at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art.
The event will feature prints by Kansas State University printmaking students, faculty, alumni and visiting artists from across the country. It also will feature a student demonstration of woodblock printmaking and the chance to make your own print. The event is free and open to the public. Come enjoy appetizers, great prints and support the Kansas State University printmaking society, The Pussycat Press.
For each $5 donation, patrons will receive a small print handmade by a Pussycat Press printmaking member. Along with your print, you also will have one ticket per $5 donation entered into a raffle for a chance to win limited edition prints by Kansas State University art department faculty, alumni, graduate students, printmaking majors and visiting artists.
Donations for tickets can be purchased in advance from Pussycat Press members or at the event with cash or check.
The Pussycat Press is a fine arts printmaking press founded in 2008 by printmaking professor Jason Scuilla and the Kansas State University printmaking society in Manhattan. The press is currently in 320 Willard Hall in the art department. Our goal is to promote fine art printmaking and educate the general public on the rich history and rewarding experience of making hand-pulled traditional artist prints.
The Pussycat Press invites visiting artists and printmakers from throughout the country to Kansas State University for artist lectures, demonstrations, workshops and edition printing.
Funds raised through the club are used to support printmaking student travel to fine art printmaking conferences, educational workshops and museum exhibitions.
