The Legacy Show presents the work of five influential printmakers with ties to Lorain County who have contributed significantly to the printmaking community: Joe Sroka, Paul Arnold, Mary Owen Rosenthal, Robert Pelegrin and David Jansheski. All these artists have dedicated much of their studio practice to teaching and sharing printmaking with the next generation of young people. In their honor, Zygote Press is mounting an exhibition as well as a series of educational outreach programs to celebrate the artists’ rich legacies. This exhibition is supported by the Nord Family Foundation.
In conjunction with this exhibition we will be holding a slate of educational and public events in Cuyahoga and Lorain counties. There will be a free, public opening reception at Zygote Press on April 20 from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm. Zygote Press artists will also be teaching printmaking to Lorain County elementary school students using blocks from some of the exhibition printmakers. Zygote Press will also host an event for donors and the artists’ families.
