(FORT WORTH )
Wayne was committed to reviving fine-art lithography, which had fallen out of favor in the United States as a legitimate artistic medium. With the support of the Ford Foundation, Wayne set up a workshop named after her own studio on Tamarind Avenue in Los Angeles, whose mission was to educate artists and printers alike in order to ensure the survival of the technique. Her prints from the 1960s, the decade she oversaw Tamarind, show an intimate knowledge of the medium and its potential for technical exploration and varied abstract imagery.
