California in Relief - A History in Wood and Linocut Prints

essay by curator Art Hazelwood

The story of the development of the relief print in California carries with it the story of the Golden State. The woodcut and wood engraving techniques formed the basis of several distinctive art movements as well as cultural and political movements.

Guest curator Art Hazelwood has selected nearly 100 works spanning 100 years of California history.
