Event Description:

The Roberta & Bob Rogers Gallery (RBR G) is very excited and proud to present a show of 30+ fine art lithograph prints from 14 artists. The prints were produced by Mike Sims, owner and director of The Lawrence Lithography Workshop (TLLW), Kansas City, Missouri.

Michael Sims established The Lawrence Lithography Workshop in 1979 in Lawrence, Kansas as a contract printing and teaching facility for local and regional artists. It provided a place where artists with little or no printmaking experience could collaborate with a master printer to produce original lithographs. It was one of the very few independent presses in the Midwest. Over time, the workshop expanded its operation beyond contract printing for local artists to an increased emphasis on publishing regional and national artists. Today most projects are done on an invitational basis with TLLW acting as the primary publisher or co-publisher, though contract printing remains a significant part of the business.

Sims has produced prints for 42+ years and has worked with many of the leading artists in the United States. This will be an outstanding show with a VERY WIDE VARIETY of artist styles.

Mike Sims, Director of TLLW will present the following talks:
• Informal talk during opening: Friday, April 8, 7:00 pm
• Formal Gallery Talk: Saturday, April 9, 1:30 pm
• Printmaking Discussion and Demonstration by Mike Sims, Director TLLW,
Wednesday, April 27, 7:00 pm
