Exhibition highlights

Printmakers have had a long tradition of exchanging or trading their prints with one another. Charles Cohan, professor of art and chair of the printmaking program at the Department of Art and Art History, University of Hawai'i at Manoa, has participated in this tradition of exchange and by doing so, has developed an extensive collection of prints and print-related materials created by contemporary artists from around the world. A selection of these outstanding prints collected between 1993 and 1998 is featured in the exhibition The Commodity of Exchange: Prints from the Charles Cohan Collection at the University of Hawai‘i Art Gallery.

Five outstanding exchange portfolios that include more than 150 prints were selected for the exhibition The Commodity Exchange: Prints from the Charles Cohan Collection. The portfolios include: Colorprint U.S.A., Drawn to Stone, Epicenter, Hard Ground Printmakers, and The Levee.

Some of the most recognized printmakers include Keith Achepohl, Randy Bolton, Judith Brodsky, Carmon Colangelo, Sydney Cross, Keiko Hara, Yuji Hiratsuka, Wayne Kimball, Karen Kunc, Beauvais Lyons, Charles Massey, Jr., Kweti Nzube, Clare Romano, John Ross, Edwine Simon, Jeffrey Sipple, Vuyile Voyiya, Warrington Colescott, Ruth Weisberg, Sue Williamson, and Dongchun Yoon whose works are in significant collections around the world.
