About LAPS, its members and history

The Los Angeles Printmaking Society (LAPS) is a national non-profit dedicated to the encouragement of printmaking, educating the public and promoting the interests of printmaking as an art form. We encourage students exploring printmaking media with student exhibitions and the LAPS Foundation grants. LAPS publishes a quarterly journal Interleaf as well as catalogs and posters in support of our biennial exhibition, The National. We also maintain a web site where members can exhibit their work in our web gallery and where a calendar of events can be accessed. From our website one can explore many resource links to other printmaking sites. LAPS fosters communication among artists interested in expanding the dialogue in the graphic arts.

LAPS is a member of the American Print Alliance, which also includes: Boston Printmakers, California Society of Printmakers, Conseil Quebecois de l'Estampe, Florida Printmakers Society, Honolulu Printmakers, Maryland Printmakers, Mid America Print Council, Nova Scotia Printmakers Association, Northwest Print Council, Pittsburgh Print Group, Southern Graphics Council. LAPS has had a long and illustrious history in the Los Angeles arts community. Become an active member and join the Board.

The metal plate retains a trace of every successive stage of etching and carving, recording a process of spontaneous change and development.And new and unexpected images are born out of the process of exploring various printmaking methods.I explore symbols of hope surviving in the face of nature’s disasters and human destructiveness. I have recently experimented with abstractions of thoughts and images taken from daily life.
