Dennis B. O’Neil is professor of Art in the Fine Arts Department at the Corcoran College of Art + Design. He received his BA from Muskingum College in 1969 and graduate studies in Printmaking at Ohio University, Athens, OH. 1969-70. In 1973, O’Neil founded and remains the director of the non-profit Hand Print Workshop International, (HPWI) a collaborative printmaking studio in Alexandria, VA. In 1991 he co-founded the non-profit Russian-American printmaking workshop, Moscow Studio in Moscow, Russia, until 1996. Grants received by O’Neil on behalf of the workshop include: National Endowment for the Arts, The Trust for Mutual Understanding, Abramson Family Foundation, Soros Foundation’s Open Society and USIA’s “Arts America Program,” among others. O’Neil has organized national and international museum exhibitions around HPWI projects, including, “The View from Here” at the Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, in December, 2000. His works and those of his artists with whom he collaborates have been featured in numerous national and international exhibitions, including the recent Museum of Modern Art exhibition, EYE ON EUROPE. The Library of Congress and numerous other museums collect the varied and experimental works for which his studio is known. Mr. O’Neil’s work is a leading force in redefining the nature and use of contemporary screen-printing today.

The workshop will be an exciting opportunity for our students to experiment with innovative techniques in the silkscreen medium. Additionally, O’Neil will show a varied portfolio of dynamic prints he created with artists. The Hand Print Workshop International is dedicated to innovative printmaking and sharing our artists’ unique perspectives and ideas with the community. We offer visiting residency programs for artists from the U.S. and abroad, internships for high school and university students, and educational programs including lectures and exhibitions by our artists. Since 1997, HPWI has sponsored more than 70 artists in residence, many of them leading artists from the former Soviet Union. Work created at HPWI has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world.
