The 5th Annual Spokane Print Fest

Reinaldo Gil Zambrano and Alina Murcar discuss the monthlong printmaking event

Reinaldo Gil Zambrano, a Spokane printmaker and the lead organizer of the Spokane Print Fest, and Alina Murcar, Marketing & Communications Manager at Spokane Public Library, entered the KPBX studio to talk with E.J. Iannelli about the 5th annual Spokane Print Fest.

Spokane Print Fest is a monthlong series of workshops, exhibitions, talks and activities centered on the many facets of printmaking. It kicks off with a Print Fair at The Hive on Saturday, April 1 and runs until Saturday, April 29 at venues all over the city.

Some other cornerstone Print Fest events include the exhibition “Transmutation” at the Terrain Gallery, the exhibition "Sort Yourself Out” at the Liberty Gallery and the Spokane Print & Publishing Center's birthday celebration on April 22.

Along with regional printmakers and book artists like Chris Bovey, Mary Farrell, Mel the Maker, Alexandra Iosub, Thom Caraway, Kevin Haas and Zambrano himself, Print Fest will also bring in work by nationally and internationally celebrated artists like Koichi Yamamoto, CHema Skandal! and Carlos Barberena.
