Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Three things we are thankful for this year:
Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County and our sister organization, Washington Print Foundation–2011 was WPF’s first full year in Maryland, making it eligible for Maryland grants. We are so happy they won the Small Organizations grant supporting both this and next year’s National Small Works Exhibitions. Thanks AHCMC! You can help WPF and it’s programming, too, by donating here.
Our wonderful new artist members–WPG added a lot of new names to its family this year–Andy Farkas, Clare Winslow, Dean Russell Thompson, Eric COGu Robinson, Heather McMordie, Janet Yagoda Shagam, and Kiyomi Baird. Their techniques, styles, and approaches to their art vary widely, but all are dedicated and talented printmakers that we are happy to have here.
Our long-time artist members–WPG has been in existence for 26 years now. We are happy to have some of our founding members still taking an active role in the gallery–exhibiting in solo and group shows, volunteering for gallery activities, and being continually committed to the gallery’s success. A special thank you to Carolyn Pomponio, Nuong Van-Dinh Tran, Nina Muys, Pauline Jakobsberg, and Terry Svat (hope we didn’t forget anyone–some of our founding members are very modest!).
