The Pacific Rim Exhibition Series is a presentation of the Art Department of the University of Hawai`i at Hilo. The exhibition is the fifth biennial international showcase for works of art in printmaking from throughout the Pacific Rim at the University of Hawai`i at Hilo.
Printmaking includes intaglio, which involves etching, drypoint, engraving, and other techniques on metal plates; lithography, a printing process on limestone or specially prepared aluminum plates; silkscreen (serigraphy); relief prints, in wood block, wood engraving, and linoleum cuts; collography, usually cardboard plates using collage materials; and monoprints or monotypes. In addition, there are printmaking media which incorporate digital or computer imagery and printing.
The large geographical area and the cultural diversity of the Pacific Rim provide the exhibit with a broad range of subject matter in the different printmaking media. The work in the exhibition was selected from more than 300 entries submitted for jurying. This year, there were entries from England, Scotland, Bulgaria, and the Czech Republic. There are many works in the exhibit which feature color printing and use multiple combinations of different printmaking media in one print.
The exhibition features 33 prints by twenty-nine artists from eight countries representing the continental United States, Canada, Peru, Australia, Japan, Korea, Czech Republic, and Russia. Hawai`i is represented in the exhibition which includes artists residing in California, Nebraska, Texas, Iowa, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Maine, New York, and Vermont.-------------------------------
