Garo Z. Antreasian
Herron will show Garo Z. Antreasian: SELECT WORKS in our Marsh Gallery. The show will include paintings and prints.
Antreasian, an Indianapolis native who attended Herron as a scholarship student, was hired by the school on the day of his graduation in 1948 to teach still life painting and composition. He convinced the dean to add printmaking to the curriculum and became its first instructor.
He was a founding member of the Tamarind Lithography Workshop, opened in Los Angeles in 1960, where he served as technical director. He co-authored The Tamarind Book of Lithography: Art and Techniques. Originally published in 1971, the work has been continuously updated and is still considered the seminal text on the subject.
