JONESBORO – The Arkansas State University Department of Art and Design printmakers will host a Printmaking Symposium celebrating the 22nd anniversary of the Delta National Small Prints Exhibition (DNSPE) on Friday, Feb. 16, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

A-State printmakers will welcome artists Travis Janssen [BFA ’00], Tatiana Potts and Marilee Salvator along with students from Lyon College, Southeast Missouri State University, Western Kentucky University and Arkansas State.

The day will begin with demonstrations by Potts and Salvator.  Potts will move participants off the flat surface with her book and folding techniques.  Salvator will demonstrate monoprinting using mixed media, an example of which is currently on view in the DNSPE exhibition at Bradbury Art Museum.  It received the Chancellor’s Purchase Prize.
