I am sad to report that Larry Sommers, longtime printmaking tech at the University of Washington, artist, activist, and friend, has passed away following a heart attack he suffered while attending Southern Graphics Council in Chicago.
I’ll always remember Larry as the glue that held my grad school experience together while the department was being dismantled around us. When I get home tonight I’ll post some pictures of Larry in rare form at an Iraq war protest rally in ’04. Meanwhile, here’s an example of his work from an exhibition at PrintZero Studios in 2007.
Goodbye, friend. You will be missed.
