ART 2301 Printmaking Student Portfolios

The collection is comprised of scanned fine art print portfolios from Associate Professor of Art Gregory Page’s ART 2301: Introduction to Print Media classes. Themes and collaborators of the portfolios include historical artists, museum exhibitions, and projects at the Cornell Botanic Gardens, to name only a few. Collaborators for these projects include the Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell Botanic Gardens and the departments of Entomology and Biology all at Cornell University.

Spring 2018

The Spring 2018 class collaborated with Todd Bittner, Director of the Natural areas at the Cornell Botanic Gardens and Mark Whitmore, Forest Entomologist, Department of Natural Resources at Cornell University. Throughout the semester the students visited locations in the NY state area affected by Emerald Ash Borer and the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid to get a better understanding of the plight of the Hemlock and Ash trees. In addition, the students participated in the creation of a site-specific art installation directed by Todd Bittner at Beebe Lake to bring awareness to the Cornell University Community.

The works convey an understanding and sense of the destruction and endangerment of the Hemlock and Ash trees in our region taking place through the invasive insects such as the Emerald Ash Borer and the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid. The overall mission for the project is to be a part of an effort to developing a constituency for the plight of the Hemlock and Ash trees on a larger scale.

The works in the portfolio contain prints with a variety of lithographic processes including stone, and plate photo-lithography. Each print measures 11”x 15” and was printed on various archival grade fine art papers in a limited edition of 20 prints.
