Meet Your Printmaker
at Washington Printmakers Gallery
June 29, 2009 – July 26, 2009
Opening Reception: Friday, July 3 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm
For over a year Meet Your Printmaker has been compiling a directory of independent print/printmaking studios around the world through its blog. Meet Your Printmaker shifts the emphasis away from the artist/printmaker and presents the printers/printmakers as a unique workforce … the groups and individuals who uphold and evolve new and traditional printing/printmaking techniques, whether in the form of commercial work, artist editions or retail products and who share their skills and educate their respective communities.
