SEPT 07 Gallery Talk: Alison Saar In Print

Take a break at NMWA. 

Looking for some artistic and intellectual nourishment during your lunch break? Join us on Wednesdays for short gallery talks to explore highlights from special exhibitions and NMWA’s collection with museum staff.

This week, NMWA Curatorial Assistant Stephanie Midon discusses several works in the special exhibition Alison Saar In Print.


Alison Saar (b. 1956, Los Angeles) uses dynamic printmaking techniques to explore themes of feminine, racial, and cultural identity. The artist’s hand-wrought woodcuts combine strong color and bold forms. Drawn from both NMWA’s and private collections, the exhibition also brings to focus how Saar’s printmaking practice relates to her sculptural work.
