The Berkeley Art Center has released a limited edition print by Bay Area printmaker Enrique Chagoya created in partnership with San Francisco’s fine arts press Electric Works to raise funds for the gallery and as part of its new exhibtion, Light/Dark.

The humorous print, titled “Downsize Gazpacho (with reduction of NEA)”, and multiples, is modeled on Chagoya’s popular series of “Cannibull’s” soup cans released by Electric Works last year.

Chagoya, a Mexican-born painter and print-maker, studied art at the San Francisco Art Institute and at UC Berkeley. He lives in San Francisco and teaches art at Stanford.

Light/Dark, which opened on April 2 and runs through May 29, features 53 works from 53 artists chosen from a submission pool of nearly 100 members of the California Society of Printmakers. The works were selected by Chagoya, and encompass a range of styles and approaches based in the print medium.

“Downsize Gazpacho (with reduction of NEA)” is on view as part of the exhibition and available for a limited time. The digital print is part of an edition of 50 and the multiple is a small edition of 25. The print is available for $250, the multiple is part of the deluxe, two-item set and costs $500 for both print and multiple.
