Trenton Doyle Hancock
The LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies was founded in 1996 by a generous endowment gift from LeRoy and Janet Neiman to promote printmaking through education, production and the exhibition of prints. The Center’s mission is to provide undergraduate as well as graduate students a rich environment to investigate and produce images through a myriad of printmaking techniques which include intaglio, photogravure, lithography – stone, plate and offset, silkscreen, relief (wood, linocut), photography, digital imaging and laser engraving.
A significant part of the Center’s core curriculum is to provide students with exceptional printmaking experiences similar to those learned in a commercial printshop. To that end, the Center promotes and publishes professional print projects in it’s shops, with invited artists, where students participate as press assistants and learn the advanced techniques of edition production.
Installed in the gallery is a selection of the most recent publications of the Neiman Center. MFA printmaking students as well as undergraduates from Columbia University, with proven engagement in the printmaking media, editioned these projects with the guidance of master printers in the field of contemporary printmaking.
