Little Giant Collective is proud to present our next exhibit, "Breakup with the Ocean" featuring new relief prints and woodblocks by LGC member Ash Armenta. Please join us at the opening reception this Friday, May 3rd from 6pm-9pm with a block printing demo from 7pm-8pm.
Ash’s all new work looks at the relationship they have with the ocean and some the coastal animals. The show is Ash’s bittersweet farewell to the Pacific coast as they will be starting an MFA program at University of Wisconsin Madison.
Ash Armenta is a print media artist based in the Bay Area of California. Ash concluded the two year program at Tamarind Institute and received the title of Tamarind Master Printer in 2017. The program included several collaborations with artists such as Matt Shlian, Rashaad Newsome, Nicola Lopez, and Nina Elder.
Ash enjoys printing collaboratively with artists as well as printing personal work, painting outdoor murals, illustration, woodworking, sign painting, and anything involving handmade fine details. Ash also teaches studio art and art history lecture classes.
Other interests include organizing collaboration, investigating how queer bodies navigate public spaces and visual manifestations of community. Additionally what constitutes the multiple or edition and how principles of traditional printmaking can be expanded in similar practices of making.
