1st Annual Connecticut Printmakers Invitational Show

Opening Reception: March 17, 5-7pm

I am very pleased to have the opportunity to curate the first dedicated printmaking exhibit for the Windsor Art Center. My objective has been to educate the gallery audience about the wide variety of printmaking techniques that are available to artists today. Utilizing traditional processes which have a rich and deep history throughout the world, or contemporary methods made possible by technological advances, there are many techniques represented in the exceptional original prints in this show.

The twelve very accomplished artists that I invited for this show demonstrate their love and dedication to the fine art print in their individual studio practice, through their teachings and in sharing their enthusiasm for printmaking in general. I thank them all for trusting me to present their work.

On April 14th and 21st several of these printmakers will be talking about their art work. Each presentation will start at 1PM.

There are many other artists who occasionally add printmaking to their repertoire, by seeking out master printers who have perfected many skills and can guide an artist toward a creative goal. Anyone with a vision can be successful in printmaking with expert help and attention.
