Glen Alps: from the Collection

Free, by appt. only.
Glen Alps was a printmaker and educator credited with having developed the collagraph. He disseminated the techniques he developed for the making of collagraphs during his long career as and artist and teacher at the University of Washington. Alps work in printmaking was in keeping with the realism of American Regionalists, Thomas Hart Benton and Grant Wood but by 1947 his work became influenced by the Northwest Mystics and had turned toward abstraction and vivid color, judiciously used. The Jundt Art Museum has 174 holdings of Alps, the bulk of which was gifted to the Museum in 2004 by a relative, A. Fae Tegtman. This exhibition includes 37 prints, numerous plates, matrices and proofs. On display through Aug. 13; open Mon-Sat by appt. only.
