2017 Juror: Amze Emmons Honolulu Printmakers welcomes artist, educator, and writer Amze Emmons to our studio in Spring 2017 to select work for our Annual Exhibition and to teach a technical workshop in laser cutting for printmakers. Amze’s work has been widely exhibited and evokes a sense of magical/minimal realism informed by architectural illustration, comic books, cartoon language, information graphics, news footage, consumer packaging, and instruction manuals. An Associate Professor at the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia, Amze is one of the three co-founders and co-editors of, an influential printmaking blog started in 2008.

2017 Gift Print Artist: Sally French Every year since 1933, the Honolulu Printmakers has commissioned a local printmaker to produce an edition of prints that the organization makes available to its members and the public to raise funds for its activities. Kauai-based artist Sally French is known for her dark humor and exploration of diverse materials. Originally from California, French came to Hawaii in the 1970s and set up a studio that she has maintaned for over 30 years. Having worked and taught throughout the U.S. and completed multiple mural commissions, she is currently focusing on the monotype process, as well as on hosting artist residencies at her Double Dog Dare studio.

This exhibition is free and open to the public. School groups are encouraged to visit and may arrange in advance for a guided tour.
