PRINT Alumni at Tamarind Institute

UNT CVAD is proud to announce recent accomplishments of two alumni at the Tamarind Institute of Lithography. Tamarind Institute, a division of the College of Fine Arts at the University of New Mexico, is a nonprofit center for fine art lithography that trains master printers and houses a professional collaborative studio for artists.

Alumna Jaime Durham (BFA 2014) studied Studio Art with a concentration in printmaking. She was newly appointed as an apprentice printer at Tamarind. Jaime has had experience at P.R.I.N.T Press, as well as Yozo Studio in Dallas. She has been professionally trained in lithography, letterpress, intaglio, relief, silkscreen and monotype printing.

In addition to Jaime Durham’s outstanding accomplishment, we are also proud to learn that alumnus David Villegas (MFA 2017) is participating in Tamarind’s Summer Workshop this July.

The summer workshop is a 4-week intensive emphasizing aluminum plate lithography. Acceptance to the program is competitive.

David received his MFA this past spring. David was a graduate assistant at P.R.I.N.T from 2016 –17. He also assisted several collaborations at P.R.I.N.T for his coursework in the Printmaking area.

Congrats to our many excellent CVAD alumni!
