Women's Focus: 9/14 Sat Noon: A daylong symposium on Sept. 14 at the Albuquerque Museum explores how women have shaped the field of printmaking with an intergenerational roster of printers, curators, artists, and publishers. 

It's organized by the Tamarind Insititute and features New York-based artists Danielle Orchard. Her work focuses on the female figure and what she recognizes as the “anxiety around intimacy.”

She’s the third recipient of the Frederick Hammersley Artist Residency at Tamarind Institute. Through this program, artists who are new to printmaking are able to explore the potential of lithography and the collaborative process that Tamarind offers. Orchard will be in conversation with Tamarind Master Printer Valpuri Remling at 3:45 pm, Sept. 14.

On Saturday evening Sept. 14, Tamarind will host its fundraiser, the Win/Win Lottery.
