In printmaking, the B.A.T. is the final trial proof that the artist approves, indicating for the printer what an edition should look like. B.A.T. (Bon à Tirer/Good to Go) at Offramp Gallery, opening December 8, 2013, features the works of 21 women artists who have printed with master printer Francesco Siqueiros of El Nopal Press

Located in downtown Los Angeles, the press has worked with an impressive roster of artists in its 25-year history. Siqueiros has focused mainly on artists from Los Angeles and Mexico City, but he has worked with artists from New York, Paris, and Buenos Aires as well. 

In considering the selections for this exhibition, the number of women El Nopal Press has published is impressive. Printmaking has long been an art form that not only has been open and available to women artists, but one in which they have excelled. This is especially apparent in the history of printmaking in Los Angeles, where June Wayne had such a hand in establishing the importance of the medium.

Siqueiros is a great collaborator and innovator, allowing artists to experiment with the process and new techniques in order to achieve the desired result. The strength of the work in this exhibition represents not only the skill of the artists but the unique relationship between artist and master printer.
