San Francisco artist Ruth Asawa (b. 1926) first gained renown in the 1950s for the inventive wire sculptures she crocheted by hand. These daring new art forms earned Asawa critical acclaim and a fellowship to the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles in 1965.

There she created a series of prints based on themes in nature. Ruth Asawa: Organic Meditations features an elegant series of lithographs that invite viewers to contemplate Asawa’s unique vision of the natural world’s beauty and wonders.
