Switzerland’s Prestigious TASIS School Exhibits Prints from Their Work in My Studio

Art classes from The American School in Switzerland (TASIS) have been coming to my printmaking studio to learn printmaking with me since 2015 and, over time, have accumulated a body of work. Their art teachers, Martyn Dukes and Frank Long, always anxious to promote their young artists, many of whom go on to university art programs, help them put together a collective show of their work here over the past five years. What follows is a brief article they published recently on the TASIS website.

¡Hasta la vista, baby!

Print Exhibition featuring student artworks from TASIS Visual Arts Academic Travel Granada Print Workshop, 2015 – 2020

 Now on view in the Ferit Şahenk Art Center’s Horst Dürrschmitt Gallery on the TASIS campus in Montagnola, a small village overlooking Lugano, is an exhibition of student prints from solar plate etchings and gravures made in the print studio of master printer Maureen Booth in Pinos Genil, Spain, near the city of Granada. The show celebrates the diversity of student work and the wonderful opportunity that a week-long, immersive art-making workshop provided to TASIS students in the Advanced, AP, and IB Visual Arts courses.

 In addition to individual student prints, the exhibition features three collaborative Artists’ books made in February, 2020 and short videos on the gallery screen that show the printmaking process in the studio.

 Students from 2015, 2016, 2017, 2020, and 2021 are represented in the exhibition which features a wide variety of subjects and styles, all encapsulated in the Solar Plate technique. Intaglio etchings in various colors of ink and featuring Chiné-colle applique are seen alongside photogravure and design gravure examples.
