The Eccentric Vision of William Stolpin
September 16, 2017 - January 7, 2018Graphics Gallery
Well-known local artist William (Bill) Stolpin knew he wanted to explore the possibilities of printmaking in junior high school. One year, he made a linoleum block Christmas card that had seven different blocks and 15 colors, a highly technical project for a novice printmaker. He became well-versed in all printmaking techniques, but focused his career on screen printing, relief, intaglio, and lithographic artworks. His subjects were as varied as his techniques. He explored everything from nature and abstraction to fantasy and outer space. Twenty-nine works from the artist’s prolific career are on display in The Eccentric Vision of William Stolpin.
