Humboldt State University First Street Gallery is pleased to present The Oaxaca Humboldt Print Exchange from April 7 through May 20, 2007.  Featured artists include Shinzaburo Takeda and his students from la Universidad Autónoma Benito Juárez de Oaxaca  (UABJO), in México; as well as Professor Sarah Whorf and her students from Humboldt State University (HSU). Humboldt State University and UABJO participate in a number of intercollegiate exchange programs.

This cultural exchange between the two universities and their respective communities features a wide variety of printmaking processes and themes; with a special emphasis on the theme of the Nahual, a traditional belief, indigenous to the Oaxacan region.

With essays prepared by HSU student interns Charrisa Schulze, Caitlin Collings, Cassandra Erb and Juliana Tong, you can join us as we explore the work, the themes and the lives of the artists who comprise The Oaxaca-Humboldt Print Exchange. Click on the images above.
