Pyramid Atlantic founder Helen Frederick has curated the exhibition Noesis: 12 Printmakers Looking Intuitively at the World at the Cosmos Club. The Cosmos Club is a private club, but we did want to mention the exhibition because we saw so many familiar names, including current members Rosemary Cooley, Jenny Freestone, Trudi Y. Ludwig and Margaret Adams Parker. Additionally, we’re pleased to see former member Fleming Jeffries and WPG friends Elzbieta Sikorska as exhibitors. If you are a member of the Cosmos Club (or friends with one!), this exhibition will be up May 16-September 8.

Rosemary Cooley has been one busy printmaker! Look at all the upcoming exhibitions she will be included in:
RED at the Old Print Gallery–This exhibition opens tonight (5-8 pm) and runs through April 13. As the event site states, ” Red is the color of blood, fire, earthen clay and blushing petals, and as such, has strong symbolic connections to life and vitality.” This exhibition, which aptly starts the day after Valentines day and runs through the return of life and vitality of early spring, features contemporary printmakers who fearlessly incorporate red into their work. WPG artist Nina Muys will also have a print in this exhibition.
Noesis: 12 Print Media Artists Looking Intuitively at the World–Curated by Helen Frederick, this exhibition at the Cosmos Club will be held in May and also features Amelia Hankin, this year’s juror for the Pyramid Atlantic Member Exhibition. More details to come soon.
Solo Exhibition at NIH–Also, more details to come soon on this exhibition, but we do know it will be in September of this year. Mark your calendars!
WPG member Trisha Gupta has an exhibition on view starting this weekend at Art Works in Bethesda, MD. Her exhibition Revisit Remake showcases a series of prints that depict monuments in Mumbai, India. These prints explore the relationships between large, impersonal monuments such as the Victoria Terminus and the Taj hotel and individual people’s experiences with them.
This exhibition will be on view February 3-March 1, with an opening reception on Friday, February 8, 6-9 pm.
WPG artist member Max-Karl Winkler will be teaching an 8-week Relief Printmaking class at the Smithsonian, beginning Thursday 24 January. This class meets once a week for 2 1/2 hours, and is held at the Ripley Center (easily accessible by Metro). Students will design their own prints, carve both linoleum and wood blocks, learn one-color and two-color printing techniques, and print (without a press) their work. This course is offered through The Smithsonian Associates; further description and enrollment forms (for this and other studio arts classes) can be found on-line at their class website.
