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.
