Co-curated by Sarah Marshall, professor of printmaking, and Doris Sung, professor of Asian art history, of the department of art and art history, Women of Mokuhanga features works in the Japanese method of mokuhanga (watercolor woodblock printmaking) by contemporary artists and traditional works in the medium, connecting its history with the vibrant output of women artists working today.
The exhibition features work by five celebrated contemporary women printmakers—Katie Baldwin, Jennifer Mack-Watkins, Yoonmi Nam, Lucy May Schofield, and April Vollmer—along with historical examples of mokuhanga: 19th-century ukiyo-e prints from the Sarah Moody Gallery of Art Permanent Collection and the Dr. and Mrs. William T.
