Although widely known for his contributions to lithography, Garo Antreasian (1922 – 2018) dismissed the notion he was “just” a printmaker. As early as the 1940s Antreasian exhibited his paintings in New York and the last several decades of his career were dedicated almost exclusively to painting and drawing. The current exhibition offers a collection of the artists iconic lithographs alongside a selection of oil and charcoal works on paper.

Antreasian died in 2018 at the age of 96 with over fifty years of exhibition history. His paintings, drawings and master prints are housed in over 60 museum collections including The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the New Mexico Museum of Art. Antreasian was a founding member of Tamarind, where he served as the first Technical Director and Master Printer. He also was a dedicated and beloved Professor at the University of New Mexico for more than two decades.
