Louis Bunce: Works on Paper
November 5, 2016 -January 29, 2017
Print Study Center

Louis Bunce is known for his paintings on canvas and panel, but throughout his long career he also worked on paper, creating a vital body of prints, drawings, and paintings in gouache and other media. He pioneered serigraphy as a fine art in the Northwest thus helping to transform what had been a means for mass production advertising into a medium for limited edition fine art printmaking. Organized by professor emeritus and senior faculty curator Roger Hull, this exhibition opened Nov. 5, 2016, and continues through January 29, 2017, in the Print Study Center.
