UNM’s Tamarind Institute hosts two-day sale on Friday and Satruday, April 5 and 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The sale features final impressions, slightly damaged and or highly discounted fine art lithographs, while supplies last.
In addition to their extraordinary lithographs and monotypes, Tamarind is also utilizing this event to sell the remnants of the fine papers used to make their art. This paper is great for note cards, small prints and other crafts.
UNM’s Tamarind Institute is a division within the College of Fine Arts at UNM, and is known for their mastery of lithography. Lithography is a method of printing based on the separation of oil and water. A lithograph is an original image created by an artist who works closely with a master printer. A press is used to transfer drawings from stones or metal plates to paper. Although the term "lithography" may refer to commercially reproduced images, such as those on posters or in magazines, fine art lithography is a hand process used to create original works of art that can be printed multiple times.
