Navigation Press is a master printmaking residency within the School of Art (SOA) at George Mason University, established in 2006 by Helen Frederick and Harold Linton. Each year, a visiting artist spends a week in the print studio with students and a master printmaker to complete a limited-edition print, while also participating in lectures, workshops, and critiques. While many are master printmakers themselves, the visiting artists of Navigation Press have represented a variety of artistic backgrounds and media, including painting, sculpture, book art, and zines.

“Process Logs” highlights five Navigation Press artists and their completed prints, as well as the often-invisible practices behind the finished work. The exhibition also introduces the many behind-the-scenes printmaking collaborators who made these works possible.

Visitors will have an opportunity to see the artifacts of various stages of the printmaking process, including original printing plates, multi-layered transparencies, and preparatory sketches.

“Process Logs: Prints, Plates, and Sketches from Navigation Press at Mason” will be on exhibition in the Fenwick Gallery of George Mason University from May 8 through August 11, 2017. The gallery is located on the first floor of Fenwick Library on Mason’s Fairfax campus. Visitors may find nearby parking in the Rappahannock Deck.
