Terry Svat and Pauline Jakobsberg on WPG in Houston

From Terry Svat:

Yes, you heard correctly. WPG members are showing at the Museum of Printing History in Houston, Texas.

The opening was August 22, 2013. Pauline Jakobsberg, Ron Meick and I were lucky enough to be there for this happy occasion. Check out the announcement that is hanging on the outside wall of the museum. It was exciting and very impressive.

Many members of our host group, Houston Print Matters, and many other interested viewers were there to welcome us. We were so happy to be able to answer the many questions about the how, what, and why of the artwork. The exhibit was hung very well as you can see.

The exhibit will be up until October 19, 2013. Our thanks to Trudi Ludwig and Andis Applewhite for the excellent curating.

From Pauline Jakobsberg:

As Terry said, Ron, she and I were delighted to be there and meet our hosts. I toured the rest of the building and was delighted to see other printmakers at work — one lithographer in particular who was restoring the image from a huge stone that he had acquired. The Museum of Printing History has a permanent collection worth seeing, and they offer a full schedule of printmaking classes including bookbinding and letterpress.

Andis Applewhite was most gracious and took the time with us to see Houston’s art scene, which is pretty exciting.
