A California Society of Printmakers Risograph Anthology
Seven new drawings from Kent’s 2023 series Existential Epistemologies were created for, and published in, Garland Variations, a Risograph Anthology publication. Master Risograph printer Zach Clark of National Monument Press shares “Garland Variations exists as an experimental publication in which each of the participating artists collaborated with me to make original works intended for Risograph printing, many for the first time. The results are a collection of work I feel is truly unique within the intersection of Riso and traditional printmaking.” Garland Variations features the work of Beth Fein, Megan Broughton, Kent Manske, Kelly Autumn, LeeAnn J. DiCicco, Kevin Harris, & AV Pike.
