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. On the cover is An­treasian’s color litho­graph, Octet Suite, Plate 8, 1969; cour­tesy UNM Press.
