Albuquerque Museum Foundation and Albuquerque Museum invite you to a special benefit event featuring distinguished painter, educator, and pioneering lithographer Garo Z. Antreasian.
Garo Antreasian was born in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1922. He studied with Will Barnett at the Art Students League and Stanley William Hayter at Atelier 17 in New York. An early interest in printmaking led him to national notoriety in the technical and artistic potential of fine art lithography. Antreasian became the first Technical Director of the Tamarind Institute of Lithography in Los Angeles in 1960. He moved to Albuquerque in 1964 to accept a faculty position at the University of New Mexico.
