California Society of Printmakers 2022 Show

I stood in the gallery of Piedmont Center for the Arts last Sunday, able to look carefully at the eclectic variety of prints in the latest (108th) California Society of Printmakers Member's Exhibition, noticing the layering of various techniques. The result was quite a bit of color and texture. It's always a beautiful and interesting show.

Here's a mini tour. The glare made it difficult to photo properly, but here's the idea.
