Flight Paths: Selected Prints 2000 - 2015 By Charles Cohan
October 6th - 28th, 2017
Opening reception on First Friday October 6th from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
The exhibition Flight Paths surveys 15 years of prints by Honolulu based printmaker Charles Cohan. The title refers to the various trajectories that Cohan has investigated since 2000, and reflects his interest in a diverse range of content developed though traditional hand printmaking media. Works presented in the exhibit represent the execution of images in the techniques of stone lithography, zinc plate etching, drypoint on copper, collagraph, woodcut, and screenprinting.
Charles Cohan is Professor of Art and Chair of Printmaking in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He received an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art and a BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts. He works under the moniker ‘Arm and Roller Press’ when printing for other artists and community events, and is co-founder of the Honolulu based Lithopixel Refactory Collective print performance troupe. Awards include a U.S. Department of State Artist in Residency Research Grant for travel to Havana, Cuba, the Helpmann Fund Artist Residency Grant in Australia, a Hawaii State Culture and the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship, and the 2017 Catharine B. Cox Award for Artistic Excellence from the Honolulu Museum of Art. He exhibits and teaches internationally.
This First Friday's Opening reception will be festive with Belly Dancers. EHCC is a non-profit organization, supporting arts and culture in the Hilo community for nearly 50 years with free monthly exhibitions and dancing, workshops, and the only community print studio in East Hawai'i.
