Bill Thompson: 20 Years of Printmaking at Center Street Studio

Please join us for a conversation between artist Bill Thompson and James Stroud of Center Street Studio

Although well known for his slick-surfaced abstract sculptures, Bill Thompson's two-decade-long collaboration with master printmaker James Stroud at Center Street Studios has created a complementary body of work that relates to and sometimes informs his three-dimensional pieces. The long-term partnership allows Thompson to experiment with new forms, even those that would be impractical or impossible for him to sculpt. The resulting prints are arresting works that both celebrate and expand the parameters of his artmaking practice.

This talk is held in conjunction with Bill Thompson's exhibition currently on view at MassArt's President's Gallery (11th floor, tower building) and 
Bill Thompson, a retrospective, on view at Barbara Krakow Gallery, Boston from September 10 through October 19, 2013.
