We noted a few issues back that the 'California Printmakers' exhibition at Laguna Art Museum was a great new exhibit of seminal print artists who left their mark beyond paper in the art world, and today one of those artist makes an appearance to talk shop about the process, techniques and art of printmaking. Dirk Hagner, a California transplant originally from Germany, uses the centuries-old, seemingly obsolete letterpress method for his prints, and unites them with contemporary fax machines and photo intaglio etching. If there's anyone who you'd want to talk about your own ideas about printmaking, or field questions about how he makes his work, look no further than this talking encyclopedia at his lecture tonight.
