This week Zdzislaw Sikora, printmaker and Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies at the New Hampshire Institute of Art, brought his wealth of knowledge to UNK Art and Design students. Sikora—whose rich and colorful retrospective show is currently up in the Walker Gallery—demonstrated a variety of printmaking techniques including monotype printing on glass.

Sikora has a 30 year record of exhibitions both national and international. His work is represented in more than fifty public collections including the Library of Congress, The National Gallery of Art, The Brooklyn Museum of Art, Fogg Art Museum of Harvard University, and the Museo del Grabado in Buenos Aires. Sikora works primarily in large-scale color etchings and monotypes.

The master printmaker also hosted an artist talk in the Walker Gallery following his workshop where he spoke to students, faculty, and the public about his background, his process, and inspirations.
