L.A. Printmaking Society

I recently joined the L.A. Printmaking Society and the first event I went to we heard June Wayne speak about printmaking, along with other old time printmakers who are credited with making Los Angeles the premiere town for the creation of lithography. Most of the prints shown were from the 60's so there was a lot of social comment - war, women's rights, racial equality...
I found myself thinking that all of these people are in their 80's and 90's and will soon pass on, leaving only their beautiful art work as a reminder of their time on earth. I felt honored to be in a room with so many great talents. Very inspiring!
