GALVESTON — The Galveston Arts Center will present “Ron Adams, Master Printer” and “Luis Jimenez: Selected Prints.”

Both exhibitions will open during the June 7 ArtWalk and will remain on view through July 6 at 2501 Market St.

The event is free and open to the public.

Exhibitions are in conjunction with PrintHouston, a summer-long celebration of original prints, the artists who create them, and the people who collect them.

Adams has been featured in exhibitions at the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe, Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery in Nashville and the University of New Mexico Art Museum in Albuquerque, among others.

Jiminez (1940-2006) received many grants and awards, including the Fellowship Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

His work appears in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Museum of Modern Art in New York and the National Collection of Fine Arts, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.

The exhibition gallery and selections from Galveston Arts Center’s retail gallery, ArtWorks, are open to the public from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.

Admission is free at all times. A brochure listing all ArtWalk participants with times and locations can be downloaded at www.galvestonarts
