Lots of news to share with you today! First and foremost, we just spoke with 2011’s National Small Works Winner Hannah Phelps, who will be having her solo show here alongside August’s National Small Works exhibition. The title of her solo show is “Plein Air to Print,” as all the prints included either began as plein air paintings or were printed outside on location. There might be some drawings and paintings accompanying her prints, too!
Also, we just got an invitation to the upcoming exhibition at the Ratner Museum, entitled “Common Ground: The Handmade Print.” Along with several other DC area printmakers, we are happy to see our own Deron DeCesare’s work included. The opening reception is Sunday, May 6, at 1:30 pm. The exhibition runs May 2-28.
Finally, we have a long-in-advance reminder. It’s 2012, which means this fall will feature another Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair! Everything is its very preliminary planning stages now (we don’t think vendors can even apply for tables, yet). But, if you missed it 2010, make sure you’re around for it this year! You can keep abreast of any updates on their website, linked above.
