The Old Print Gallery is pleased to announce a new show, from June 10- July 8, 2011, entitled Line & Shadow. The exhibit features a selected collection of prints by early 20th century and contemporary artists, all skilled in the use of line and the depiction of light. For these artists, their etched and engraved lines define the architectural parameters of a room, a face, a body, or a landscape, which in turn create a supporting structure for light. By illuminating their compositions, the artists achieve the illusion of three-dimensionality and bestow upon their prints depth, a sense of time, and emotion.
Featured in this show are artists Eric Goldberg, Antonio Frasconi, Matt Phillips, Steven E. Walker, Larry Welo, Ilse Schreiber Noll, Armin Landeck, Sarah Sears, Karen Whitman, Charles Mielatz, Alex Zwarenstein, Bruce Waldman, Ellen V. Winkler, Joseph Essig, and Brad Widness.
The gallery will celebrate the opening of Line & Shadow with an evening reception on Friday, June 10, 2011, from 5-8pm at the Old Print Gallery. The opening reception is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend. Light refreshments will be offered and the new collection will be on display. We hope to see everyone there!
