Fresh Cuts: Through the Matrix Event Recap

“Fresh Cuts: Through the Matrix” was an artist demonstration, film screening, and talk with acclaimed DC printmaker and documentary film director, Susan Goldman. On Saturday, October 12, in conjunction with FAD: Fashion Art Design Georgetown, the Old Print Gallery hosted Goldman, as she demonstrated the step-by-step process of printing an original woodcut print, entitled Pupil. Visitors also watched Goldman’s new documentary exploration of the post-WWII Midwestern printmaking revival, Midwest Matrix TM. The afternoon ended with an informal Q&A session with Goldman, gallery staff, and our interested guests. It was a fantastic afternoon of printmaking!

We want to extend a very BIG thanks to Susan Goldman and all of our gallery friends and followers for a great Saturday of printmaking! “Fresh Cuts: Through the Matrix” was a huge success. Check out our event photos  below.
