Transferring Ink II, an exhibition of fine art prints

FALLBROOK – Transferring Ink II is part of a two-part exhibition at the Fallbrook Art Center that focuses on fine art prints. Mary Perhacs, executive director of the center, is frequently asked questions about the various art mediums.

“With the advent of giclee prints, I’m often asked ‘What is a fine art print?’” says Perhacs. “The short answer is… an original print is the result of a process that produces multiples. It is in no sense a copy or reproduction because in this process there is no original to copy. Rather, each print is itself an original; the print is the process.”

Perhacs says the varying processes of printmaking will be explored in the show in an unusual manner - contrasting historical works with the works of juried contemporary printmakers.

One section of the show will identify the four main processes: Relief, Intaglio, Lithography, and Serigraphy using works by historically significant artists including Whistler, Currier & Ives, Picasso, Warhol, and Rockwell Kent. The other section features contemporary works by 25 artists selected from an international call for entries.

“We are particularly excited about the level of works submitted for the show, not only from across the U.S., but from Canada and London as well,” says Perhacs.

The Fallbrook Art Center provides visitors with a unique, strong exhibition, which is definitely museum quality with a twist. Most of the works are for sale.

Perhaps says shows of this magnitude are made possible in Fallbrook through the support of local collectors, art dealers and sponsors.

An opening reception will be held Sat., Sept. 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. with the show running daily from Sept. 5 through Oct. 23.

Fallbrook Art Center is located at 103 S. Main, Fallbrook. For more information, visit or call (760) 728-1414.
