From our Fall Newsletter: 1st National Exhibition of Intaglio Prints

"Out Through the Arches" by Margaret Adams Parker, one of the artists included in the 1st National Intaglio Exhibition. This print is in WPG's "Drawn to Print" exhibition.

In June 2011 the 1st National Exhibition of Intaglio Prints, hosted by the New York Society of Etchers, was exhibited in NYC. Prints were juried by Roberta Waddell, recently retired curator of prints at the New York City Library. Stephen A. Fredericks, founder of the New York Society of Etchers, arranged for the exhibition held at the National Arts Club. Pauline Jakobsberg’s etching and silkscreen print, ‘Pen Pal’, was included as well as prints by Peggy Parker and Jenny Freestone. Peggy and Pauline attended the reception on June 9th. The beautiful rooms of the National Arts Club were filled with printmakers and lots of shop talk, and the walls were graced with at least 100 selected pieces in varying techniques. Stephen Fredericks was a great host and Pauline and Peggy had the opportunity to spend time with him as well as the juror. Richie Lasansky (1st place award winner from NSW in 2010) was also in attendance and the NY Society of Etchers is looking forward to WPG’s January Invitational. A catalog of the NY exhibition is forthcoming. For more info about the exhibition and the NY Society of Etchers, please see their website.

  1. Who doesn’t love a good intaglio print? The one on the card looks great such a delicacy about the line that is used. Great stuff

  2. ADDENDUM: We apologize for leaving WPG member artist Matina Marki Tillman off of this list! Matina, as well as the above-listed artists, also had a print included and attended the opening reception.

  3. I like the Intaglio Print Making techniques job by incising in to the surface of a plate are made up of steel, copper etc with tools or with acid.
