Navigation Press at Mason: Exhibition Lecture with Helen Frederick

The artistic process is often perceived as a solitary act, with an artist independently researching, developing, and executing their ideas. In the history of printmaking, however, the atelier, or workshop model is a longstanding tradition, with artists and apprentices working closely together to complete a finished masterwork.
Join Helen Frederick (Professor Emeritus, Mason School of Art) for a lecture on the foundations of Navigation Press, a printmaking residency program at Mason, and the artistic and learning opportunities afforded by the workshop model. The lecture will conclude with a walk-through of “Process Logs: Prints, Plates, and Sketches from Navigation Press at Mason,” currently on display in the Fenwick Gallery.
