Re-opening of current exhibit at Taller Boricua Gallery to be announced

Artists: Eliezer Berrios • Betty BP Cole • James Cuebas • Elsie Deliz

Beyond a Linen Canvas: This exhibit “Experimental Techniques in Printmaking” is the result of an intense period of mentorship and education of printmaking techniques that include pronto plate, lithography, silkscreen, linocut, wood engraving, intaglio, and etching to name a few. Eliezer Berrios, Betty BP Cole, James Cuebas, and Elsie Deliz have demonstrated that they have grasped the concepts as visual artists to express their creativity beyond a linen canvas and developed a growing love of art on paper. Master Printers learn from their students, and it has been a rewarding experience to be a witness to the depth and breadth of their unique exploration as printmakers, first as apprentices and now emerging artists. Visual Artist and Master Printer Rodriguez Calero, as installation designer, weaved the art and stories displayed on the Taller Boricua Gallery walls. Bravo to Berrios, Cole, Cuebas, and Deliz.”- Nitza Tufiño, Curator and Director of Rafael Tufiño Printmaking Workshop at Taller Boricua.
