A quick gallery update for today’s post:  we have a show opening next week! We are more than pleased to announce a new show, entitled Location, Location, Location, opening on August 19, 2011, and running until September 9, 2011.

Location, Location, Location is an exhibit by our 20th century and contemporary printmakers, portraying their topographical and architectural worlds through print. Expansive landscapes, vibrant cityscapes, and the most intimate of spaces are presented in this collection, reiterating the lasting effect a place can have on our memory and lives.

Twenty different artists are included in the show. Highlights from the collection include prints by Michael W. Arike, Jonathon Taylor Arms, Nikolas Schiller, Levon West, Roger Medearis, Anders Aldrin, Benton Murdoch Spruance, and more.  The show will open with a nighttime celebratory reception on August 19, 2011 from 5-8pm at The Old Print Gallery in Georgetown. The new collection will be on display, and free wine and light refreshments will be served. The opening reception is free and all are welcome to attend.

We hope to see our blog readers there- and feel free to bring your art-loving friends as well! If you have any questions about the show, artists, or opening reception,  email us at with your questions, or check out our website here. To see prints in the show, click here.
