  • Glen E. Alps
Glen Alps (1914-1996) is best known for his development of a printing technique involving printing from variously assembled surfaces for which he coined the term 'collagraph'. He was born in Loveland, Colorado but is largely associated with the University of Washington where he earned his MFA and taught for 37 years. A summer with Mauricio Lasansky in 1947 and later with Harvey Littleton for vitreography had lasting impacts on his appreciation of the matrices from which prints are printed. He also experimented with burnt lacquer plates. Alps' prints were exhibited throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan (1950s-1980s) and are represented in many of the major print collections in the U.S. and abroad.
