Set in stone
At age ninety-four, painter and printmaker Garo Z. Antreasian keeps on working. In 1960, Antreasian co-founded the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles (now the Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque). He is known for his bold and graphic compositions. Recent works by the artist, a former art educator and professor emeritus in the art and art history department at the University of New Mexico, are on exhibit in Garo Antreasian: Systematic Abstraction at Gerald Peters Gallery, through March 12. The show includes paintings and lithographs, as well as recent wood constructions inspired by historic and contemporary game boards.
