We were pleased to see a strong representation of WPG member artists at the opening for Drawn to Washington 2 last weekend. Prints by Pauline Jakobsberg, Martha Oatway, Ellen Winkler, and Jenny Freestone were all included. There were some other familiar names as well, such as Caroline Thorington and Liz Peak, who both had works in our recent National Small Works Exhibition. Overall, it was a fantastic show, and we encourage everyone to go see it. Your last chance is Sunday, October 23.
We especially want to recognize Max-Karl Winkler and his print “Karisa,” (a portrait of the previous WPG director), which won the Washington Print Club Purchase Prize for the Permanent Collection of the Library of Congress. Congratulations to Max-Karl, and all the other artists that were accepted!
