Small Prints by Members of The Boston Printmakers
Traveling exhibition 2021 – 2023

About The Boston Printmakers Small Print Show

PHOTO GALLERY: CONNECT

CONNECT: Small Prints by  Members of The Boston Printmakers is an exhibition prompted by the theme of “communication” whereby artists create small prints with a variety of “messaging,” “news,” or whatever they want to “post.” People around the world have been plunged into communicating through technology. Internet and cellphone communication have become lifelines to staying connected to family and friends, and  gathering for momentous occasions.
This traveling show by Boston Printmakers presents the best in contemporary, traditional and experimental printmaking, from members across North America. This collection of prints will capture the creativity of artists and document a global spirit of togetherness through communication.

This themed exhibition will travel from spring 2021 through 2023.

Wednesday, March 31, 2021, 6-7pm • online event • When Printmakers CONNECT
CONNECT is an exhibition prompted by the theme of “communication” whereby artists create small prints inspired by “messaging,” “news,” or whatever they like to “post” and “share.”

This presentation opens with a brief and select overview of prints that speak to the pandemic directly with images depicting science and spores to RBG and protests, along with others having more customary subjects such as love, touch, prayer and memory. Some are hopeful, some fearful and many make us think, feel and connect!

Next, four exhibiting artists will discuss their CONNECT prints and share more examples of their works bringing us further into their repertoires. In closing, the full panel will take questions and try to satisfy every curiosity and feature of prints and printmaking.

Speakers:
David Blow, Lake Dallas TX • Stacy Friedman, Jamaica Plain MA
Theresa Haberkorn, Boulder CO • Caroline Thorington, Bethesda MD

Thursday, April 1, 2021, 6-7pm • online event •  Inside Printmaking
Exhibiting in a members’ show has its advantages, such as denoting an artist as a member of a community, an historic organization and a practicing printmaker. But that provides just a peek into the process, practices and life of a printmaker! This session will illuminate what happens in printmaking studios and three, diverse artists will share their dedication to and personal developments of the specific printmaking media they each have perfected.

Speakers:
David Avery, San Francisco CA – curiously-themed, detailed, black and white etching
Andrea Martens, Roanoke VA – exploratory, conscious, mixed media printmaking
P.D. Packard, Brooklyn NY ­– relief and alternative photographic printmaking methods
Registration and ZOOM information here
