21st July – 2nd Aug.’14: Pradarshak presents VidyarthiVishesh Phase II - Graphic Prints and Photography by Student Artists.
Graphic prints are works of art using the printmaking technique. To quote the widely accepted definition and explanation of the art of printmaking: Printmaking normally covers only the process of creating prints that have an element of originality, rather than just being a photographic reproduction of a painting.”

Printmaking (other than monotyping) is not chosen only for its ability to produce multiple impressions, but rather for the unique qualities that each of the printmaking processes lends itself to.

Prints are created by transferring ink from a matrix or through a prepared screen to a sheet of paper or other material. Common types of matrices include: metal plates, usually copper or zinc, or polymer plates for engraving or etching; stone, aluminum, or polymer for lithography; blocks of wood for woodcuts and wood engravings; and linoleum for linocuts. Screens made of silk or synthetic fabrics are used for the screen printing process. Multiple impressions printed from the same matrix form an edition.
