As part of the biennial Mid America Print Council Conference "New World/Old World," CVA is hosting an exhibition of the 2010 Outstanding Printmaker, selected by the conference nomination committee. The winner of this prestigious award is Lloyd Menard, an artist who has made a significant contribution to the field of printmaking.
Lloyd has served as a mentor for many printmakers throughout his career. Five mentees are featured along side Lloyd in the exhibition.
Lloyd Menard was born in 1938. He received his MFA from the University of Illinois and his BFA from the University of Nebraska, Omaha. After a brief period teaching high school in Dubuque, Iowa, Lloyd became a faculty member in the Art Department at the University of South Dakota (USD) in 1972. Lloyd worked at The USD for over 30 years, where he taught printmaking, papermaking, and drawing. He remained at this institution for over thirty years, retiring in 2005.
He originated Frogman's Print & Paper Workshops, one of the most prestigious printmaking workshops in the world, and hosted annually each summer in the USD Department of Art. Lloyd also initiated the Visiting Artist Program in the USD Printmaking Department, which hosted the nation's top higher educational printmaking faculty each year.
