Art In Layers: The Americas Collection Graphics

“Art in Layers” is an exhibition dedicated to showcasing the beauty and artistic value of prints, featuring The Americas Collection’s Limited-edition serigraphs. This exhibition aims to highlight the legitimacy of serigraphy as an art form, emphasizing that its purpose of creating multiple originals.

Serigraphy, also known as screen printing, has been embraced by numerous renowned artists throughout history, solidifying its place in fine art. This technique involves pushing ink through a stencil on a screen, allowing artists to create vibrant and precise prints. Serigraphy is a distinct and expressive art form in its own right. The technique allows for a unique interplay of color, texture, and layering that can produce stunning visual effects. It became prevalent in the 20th century as a method for producing multiples, enabling artists to reach wider audiences without compromising the quality or integrity of their work.

Artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, and Shepard Fairey utilized serigraphy to produce some of their most iconic works. Warhol’s famous Campbell’s Soup Cans and Marilyn Monroe series, Lichtenstein’s comic strip-inspired pieces, Rauschenberg’s mixed media prints, Johns’ American flag and target series, and Fairey’s politically charged posters all showcase the power and impact of serigraphy in the art world.

As you explore the exhibition, we invite you to appreciate the rich history and artistic innovation that serigraphy embodies. These prints are more than reproductions; they are original works of art that capture the essence of the artists’ creative processes. We hope that “Art in Layers: The Americas Collection Graphics” inspires a deeper understanding and appreciation for this remarkable medium.
