The Eccentric Vision of William Stolpin will feature prints from the long and distinguished career of Bill (as he’s known to most) Stolpin. Currently living and printing in Holly, Michigan, Stolpin, a retired engineer, has been making prints for over 50 years. He began making linoleum block Christmas cards when he was in junior high school. One year, he made a card with seven different blocks and fifteen colors, which helped him decide to explore printmaking more seriously. He studied with internationally known lithographers and relief printers and has been teaching printmaking classes at the FIA Art School for the past decade. When asked how he would sum up his work as a printmaker, he used the word “eccentric.” He works in multiple print mediums, including woodcuts, linocuts, etchings, aquatints, and serigraphs.
