Exhibition to highlight revival of printmaking media

The Greenwich Arts Council (GAC) is preparing for tonight’s opening reception of “Prints: Another Look” in the Bendheim Gallery, which it calls a “unique exhibition which identifies the current resurgence of printmaking media and compares these developments to the classic period of modern printmaking in the 1970’s and 80’s.”

Organized by Council Curator Tatiana Mori, in collaboration with the Center for Contemporary Printmaking, Dorianne Hutton Fine Arts, Jim Kempner Fine Arts and independent curator Benjamin Ortiz, the show brings together more than 60 works by 35 different artists.

Many of the pieces are no longer in circulation and are seldom able to be seen by the public.

 

The classic component of the exhibition includes prints by major artists such as David Hockney, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Sean Scully, Willem De Kooning and Keith Haring, among others. These are joined by the works of equally significant contemporary artists including Charlie Hewitt, Howardena Pindell, Deborah Weiss, Bryan Nash Gill, Serge Clement and many others.

Anthony Kirk, artistic director of the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk and considered a master printmaker himself, will discuss the exhibition at its opening reception and explore the creative processes of various artists.

The exhibition will also be a major focus of art education outreach through the GAC [email protected] Program working with primary and middle school students in the Greenwich Public School system.

The exhibition’s opening reception takes place at the Bendheim Gallery of the GAC tonight, Nov. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. “A Conversation with Anthony Kirk” begins at 6:45 p.m. “Prints: Another Look” will remain at the gallery through Jan. 10.

Admission is free.
