Arm and Roller Press is the collaborative printing arm of Charles Cohan, professor of art at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. As a fine art printer for artists since 1990, Arm and Roller Press has accumulated a diverse collection through the production of numerous projects for various artists during the past 25 years. Arm and Roller Press also represents a collection of over 1000 prints, artists’ books, and printed ephemera that have been assembled through collaborative exchange folios and cooperative projects.

"Selections from the Collection of Arm and Roller Press" will highlight approximately 60 prints from artists working in North and South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, and provide a glimpse into the global range of traditional printmaking practices of the past 25 years. Intersections Visiting Artist Andrea Dezsö’s work is included in this exhibition.
