Lake Effect Editions is a press entity at Syracuse University that publishes works by visiting artists invited by the printmaking professors of VPA’s School of Art to work with undergraduate and graduate students each semester. These visiting artists typically give a public lecture, give critiques to the students they work with and create an edition of prints with the students, faculty and staff. Through this engagement with a working artist, Lake Effect and its guiding professors, Dusty Herbig and Holly Greenberg, hope to give students the opportunity to work directly with master print artists from both the academic and professional print worlds to create fine, hand-pulled editions of works on paper. Students work side by side with the visiting artists, who share their knowledge of printmaking and the tricks and techniques not taught as part of the regular curriculum in the printmaking intensive, a part of the studio arts programs in the School of Art.
