“Process Logs” Exhibition Lecture, July 13

George Mason University - Wed, 07/05/2017 - 12:30

Navigation Press at Mason: Fenwick Gallery Exhibition Lecture
Helen Frederick, Professor Emeritus, School of Art
Thursday, July 13, 2pm – 3pm
Fenwick Library Reading Room (Room 2001)

The artistic process is often perceived as a solitary act, with an artist independently researching, developing, and executing their ideas. In the history of printmaking, however, the atelier, or workshop model is a longstanding tradition, with artists and apprentices working closely together to complete a finished masterwork. Professor Helen Frederick (School of Art) will present a lecture on the foundations of Navigation Press, a printmaking residency program at Mason, and the artistic and learning opportunities afforded by the workshop model. The lecture will conclude with a walk-through of “Process Logs: Prints, Plates, and Sketches from Navigation Press at Mason,” currently on display in the Fenwick Gallery.

About Navigation Press

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.

About Helen Frederick

Helen Frederick is recognized as a distinguished artist, curator, educator, coordinator of international projects. As an advocate for and an active participant in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area arts scene, she has served on the directorial boards of alternative art spaces, various local and national boards and national peer-review panels. She is founder of Pyramid Atlantic, a center for artistic collaboration and support of printmakers, papermakers, and book artists. In 2006, she co-founded Navigation Press with Harold Linton, a printmaking residency program within Mason’s School of Art.

Frederick has won numerous awards and accolades, including NEA/Mid-Atlantic Residency grants and a Fulbright scholarship, and her works are held the collections of the National Gallery of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Museum in Stockholm, and the Kyoto Municipal Museum, among others.

Helen Frederick is a Professor Emeritus of School of Art at Mason, where she previously served as coordinator of the Printmaking program and director of Navigation Press.
