We’re looking forward to the new year! Mark your calendar now for our upcoming exhibitions. We hope to see you around!
January-New York Society of Etchers Invitational–-we kick off the year with a fantastic show by ten members of this esteemed group. You can read more about them in our winter newsletter. The show is up starting January 4, opening reception on January 7, 1-4 pm.
February–2nd Annual Excellence in Printmaking Exhibition–this exhibition, which grew out of the previous award, recognizes emerging printmakers. Our juror this year is Joann Moser, Senior Curator at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
March–ARTsparks, rekindling the gift, solo by Marian Osher–Marian has over 50 prints that she has pushed past the flat plane of the paper into mixed media, multi-dimensional monotypes on canvas. You can read more about her show in our newsletter.
April–Pyramid Atlantic Member Exhibition–want to know what the artists are up to downstairs? It’s all here in Pyramid Atlantic’s member show!
May–Ellen Winkler Solo Exhibition–long-time WPG member Ellen Verdon Winkler will have her second solo exhibition here since we’ve moved to Pyramid Atlantic. You can see many prints from her May 2011 exhibition at the link above. Bonus: Janet Yagoda Shagam will be exhibiting in the Press Room during May, as well!
June–Ex Libris–June brings a very special exhibition to WPG. In April, artist member Rosemary Cooleycoordinated an exchange, where American printmakers exhibited prints in Shanghai. In June, a reciprocating group of Chinese artists will be exhibiting illustration-sized prints (hence the “Ex Libris” name) at WPG. This is another unique international exhibition that WPG is pleased to present, and we hope you’ll be able to come and see the show!
July–Lee Newman group exhibition–You’ll have to check back to hear who Lee Newman has invited to share his exhibition month with him. Rumor has it that Jack Boul will be one of the artists! Eric Robinson will also be exhibiting in the Press Room.
August–The 15th Annual National Small Works Exhibition–Wow! Fifteen years and still going strong! Like previous years, WPG will exhibit prints under 170 square inches from artists across the country. The juror is yet TBA. If you’re interested in applying, check back soon–the prospectus will go live in January. We are also excited to welcome Hannah Phelps, the 2011 grand-prize winner, as our solo exhibiting artist this month.
September–Deron DeCesare–Deron was the very first solo exhibition we had after moving to Pyramid Atlantic. You may have missed it, if you either hadn’t found us yet or hadn’t realized we’d moved. Make sure you don’t miss it this time around!
October–Nuong Van-Dinh Tran–This will be the first solo exhibition by WPG founding member Nuong in our new space. Check out some of her earlier monotypes and screenprints at the link above.
November–Yolanda Frederikse–Yolanda is one of our best-selling artists, and you can see why–she has a beautiful color sense that is created in part by her unique process. She paints dye-based inks–often on location–onto a litho plate. This plate is then rolled through a press back at her studio to create the final monotype. Since only certain inks can be used, a very specific (and beautiful!) color pattern emerges.
December–Trudi Y. Ludwig–Did you see Trudi’s show-stopping piece “Dumb Luck” at her last exhibition in our Dupont Circle space? No?! You can see it here. We’re excited to see what Trudi’s next solo exhibition will bring a year from now!
