The Lawrence Lithography Workshop: Suites and Portfolioswill give visitors a glimpse into the storied Lithography Workshop and the centuries-old printmaking technique that still captivates audiences today.

Established by Michael Sims in 1979 in Lawrence, Kansas it was one of only a very few independent presses in the Midwest at the time. The Lawrence Lithography Workshop was founded to give artists with little or no printmaking experience the opportunity to create original lithographs with the collaboration and guidance of a master printer.

The Lawrence Lithography Workshop: Suites and Portfolios features the print series, or portfolios, of several of the Workshop’s prominent artists, giving those viewing it a unique opportunity to see the nuances characteristic of this art form. Artists that have participated in the Workshop and whose work will be on display in the exhibition include Theodore Waddell, Roger Shimomura and William T. Wiley.

This exhibition was organized by the Lawrence Lithography Workshop, The John and Maxine Belger Family Foundation, Belger Cartage Service, Inc., and the Wichita Art Museum. The Exhibition has been funded by Belger Cartage Service, Inc. and Emprise Bank.

As the largest art museum in the state of Kansas, the Wichita Art Museum houses one of the country’s finest collections of American art, spanning three centuries of painting, sculpture, works on paper, and decorative arts.
