lithography

Murray State University Printmaking, Facebook

Printmaking, the art of creating a print and putting it on paper, spans centuries and many forms are still active in the art world, from etching to relief to silkscreen. But one form that is considered "the beast" of the medium, lithography, combines artistic "magic" with chemistry. Tennessee State University professor and printmaker Meghan O'Connor conducts workshops at Murray State and area high schools this week and on Sounds Good, Kate Lochte meets the artist, who gives a public lecture Thursday at 2 p.m. in the Clara Eagle Gallery classroom (weather depending) and printmaking professor Nicole Hand.
