Resident Artists from Chile
Chilean resident artists Fernanda Gaete and Ximena Lecaros explored screenprinting at Artists Image Resource during summer 2016.
They worked with AIR staff to expand their art practice to include the versatility that screenprinting can provide. Fernanda mixed intaglio with screen whereas Ximena combined her linoleum relief prints with screened imagery of the matriarchs of her family.
Fernanda and Ximena worked with AIR staff and volunteers to bring their explorations of Pittsburgh into their work, sharing their culture in return.
