JUNE WAYNE

(1918, Chicago-2011, Los Angeles)

In 1960, June Wayne opened the Tamarind Lithography Workshop to train journeymen printers in assisting  artists in the lithography print technique.  She realized that the artists could apply their familiar tools (crayon, pencils, liquid pigments, charcoal, etc) to draw directly on the lithograph stone as if they were actually working directly on a piece of paper!

June Wayne expanded the understanding of the symbiotic relationship of lithography, bringing renowned artists – Frank Stella, Richard Diebenkorn, etc. – to share her passion. Here are examples of Her artistry, before and after the founding of Tamarind!

Women Artists

Los Angeles, California 
I ‘ve been reading a couple of terrific books about women artists in New York of the 1930s to 1960s approximately: Avis Berman’s “Rebels on Eighth Street” and Mary Gabriel’s “Ninth Street Women”; both are so well written, engaging, colorful and informative! It is New York scene and ‘abstract expressionism’ it depth.   
 
I – on the hand – have a focus upon the female artists OFF the east coast and cite June Wayne, Dorr Bothwell, Ynez Johnston, Helen Lundeberg, Jay Rifkin, Claire Falkenstein, Mabel Alvarez, Lola Alvarez-Bravo, Ruth Asawa, alice Asmar, Amanda Blanco, Lette Valeska, Hella Hammid, Elizabeth Catlett, Grace Clements, Corita Kent, Luchita Hurtado, Esther Lewis, Emmy Lou Packard, Ruth Peabody, Mina Pulsifer, Betye Saar, Elise Seeds, Henrietta Shore, Miriam Slater, Bonnie Stone, Joyce Treiman, Muriel Tyler, Beth VanHoesen, Beatrice Wood, and there are many others with whom I’d have liked to have relations, but were already being well represented elsewhere.
