Over a period of three days in late March, Alexander will work alongside Patrick Masterson, Master Printer at Burning Bones Press; Karin Broker, Professor of Printmaking at Rice University and Patrick Palmer, Director of MFAH’s Glassell School of Art and accomplished printmaker, to create a series of monotypes at Rice’s state of the art printmaking studio.
