Fit to Print
The nice thing about art, as compared to, say, some music, is that one can travel back in time and typically find modern relevance in older works. That is especially true if the works are tied to a particular venue, such as the Mesa Arts Center. “M8k Marks” showcases drawings, paintings, and printmaking from former faculty, current and resident artists active at the center during the past 30 years. Following printmaster David Manje, who founded the center’s printmaking program in 1985 with a converted vintage Griffin lithographic press, many of the featured artists -- such as Jeremy Yocum, Agustin Vargas, Michael Healey and Lisa Albinger -- got their start here with works stretching from protest posters to surreal and hyper-real images.
Discover printmaking at “M8k Marks,” which is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 1, at Mesa Arts Center, One Main Street. The free show runs through Sunday, April 27. Visit www.mesaartscenter.com or call 480-644-6500.
Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays, 12-4 p.m. Starts: Jan. 24. Continues through April 27, 2014
