Julius J. Lankes is considered to be one of the country’s leading woodcut artists of the first half of the 20th century. He emphasized handcrafted prints and was part of a printmaking revival in England and the U.S. that started during the second half of the 19th century. The revival was part of the broader Arts and Crafts Movement and represented a conscious rejection of the mechanization of the Industrial Revolution. Lankes died in 1960.
The exhibit can be seen 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday- Saturday at the college’s The Trout Gallery, Weiss Center for the Arts through Feb. 18.
