We have little tid-bits of info we wanted to share with you. Some have been tweeted already (and probably will be again), but some needed a bit more than 140 characters:
Sargasso Sea Scrolls
Did you see the Sargasso Sea Scrolls that are part of Pyramid Atlantic’s member exhibition this month? If not, you have until April 29 to come in and see them. A collaborative effort between Pyramid Atlantic and the Sargasso Sea Alliance (SSA), the scrolls illuminate the rich biodiversity of the Sargasso Sea and conclude months of collaboration between artists, printmakers and papermakers. You can buy a hand-printed, limited edition Sea Scroll Key and know proceeds will benefit both PA and SSA. Contributing artists include our own Jenny Freestone and Lee Newman.
The Washington Print Club’s Annual Meeting and Party is Saturday, May 5, from 11-1 pm. Not a member yet? You can sign up at their website. Also that day is Ellen Verdon Winkler’s Opening Reception, from 1-4 pm. You can party-hop and make it a truly print-filled day!
"In the Beginning," a traditional, Western-bound artist book by Margaret Adams Parker
Official dates for Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair have been announced! (We have the Save the Date bookmarks in the gallery, look for website updates from them soon.) Mark your calendars for November 16-18, 2012.
Our joint exhibition at Ronald Reagan National Airport, Pushing Process, is almost over! We de-install Tuesday, May 1 at 10 am. You (or any friends you have traveling through that airport) have until then to see it.
Finally, yesterday was the early-bird deadline for National Small Works. If you didn’t make that deadline, you still have until May 19 to apply. We posted our 2012 FAQ yesterday, and you can also check out our 2011 clarifications that went over some common issues last year, too. If you’re still having trouble with our application, feel free to call us!

We have a joint exhibition up at the Ronald Reagan National Airport with DC Glass Works, Pushing Process, on view through April 30. It’s a lot of work, all visible to the general public, in the Airport’s Gallery Walk. We hope you get a chance to see it, or, if you have friends and relatives flying in for the Cherry Blossom Festival, tell them to be on the look out!
Here’s a slideshow courtesy of Marian Osher for those who can’t make it, or just can’t wait to see some of these great prints!
We are delighted to announce the recent installation of our second exhibition at the Ronald Reagan National Airport. Like “Printmaking Flight 101,” this exhibition is in the Gallery Walk, part of the public concourse to Terminal A. Also showing in “Pushing Process” is DC Glass Works. You can check out the exhibition at the airport to see the both WPG and DCGW works in person–we only have photos of our part of the installation since we had to leave before DCGW was finished. Enjoy!
Overland Trail, 12-color reduction woodcut by Max-Karl Winkler
WPG is excited to announce that our artists will be included in a second exhibition at Reagan, entitled “Pushing Process.” We will be exhibiting alongside DC GlassWorks November 1-April 2012.
“Pushing Process” contains prints that stretch the normal limits of printmaking in different ways. For example, Max’s Overland Trail Museum is an 11-color reduction woodcut, far more colors than the average reduction or regular woodcut. Anne McLaughlin’s embellished monotypes combine collaged and sewn material on the little-used technique of clay monoprints. Mike Hagan’s screenprints are printed on the unusual surface of Vivia, a Tyvek-like product (yes, like the Tyvek that is used to wrap houses) that makes them almost indestructible.
If you saw our first show at the Reagan Airport, we encourage you to come back for this second exhibition, made all the more exciting by the inclusion of DC GlassWorks! Check back in November for more images and installation shots!
Check out the photos of our “Printmaking Flight 101″ exhibition at Reagan National Airport, provided by WPG member Marian Osher! This exhibition is on view through October 31, so you have plenty of time to check it out for yourself!
"West Wind" by Michael Hagan
Washington Printmakers Gallery is excited to be installing a new show at the Gallery Walk in the Ronald Reagan National Airport on Monday June 27. This exhibition will include close to 70 prints alongside the materials used in the five basic printing processes: Intaglio, Lithograph, Monoprint/Monotype, Relief Printing, and Serigraph.
"Up from the Sea" by Joan Krash
The gallery walk is in the public part of the terminal (no need to go through security to see it!) and will be up until October 31. If you are travelling, or know anyone who is, please take a moment to look it over–there are some beautiful prints and you might learn something, too!
