Harold Lohner is Associate Professor of Visual Arts at Sage College of Albany. He joined the faculty of Russell Sage College in 1982, directed the Troy campus gallery and taught a variety of studio art classes. In 2002 he moved to the Sage Albany campus and has taught printmaking, artists books and digital imaging. Lohners prints have been exhibited regionally and nationally for many years; recent shows include a solo exhibition at Clatsop Community College in Astoria, Oregon and group shows in California, Massachusetts, Missouri, Indiana and Monterrey, Mexico.
Monoprints have been Harold Lohners primary medium since he developed his technique during a residency at Yaddo, the artists' colony in Saratoga Springs, NY. To make these one-of-a-kind prints, a blank plate is inked, drawn on and then printed onto paper. Lohner's portraits and figures feature a subtractive drawing technique with layered colors and patterns.
He is also known for Harolds Fonts (http://www.haroldsfonts.com), his website which recently celebrated 10 years of digital fonts.
