“This varied edition evolved out of mixing my earlier ideas about pattern inspired by travel to Morocco and my new ideas about simplifying my approach to imagery of flowers, targets and amphorae. The layering of multiple print mediums relates to an archaeology of process, what is below is mysterious and fragmented, but as one uncovers the clues, a new picture emerges that references the past and the present.”- Susan Goldman

We wish you all a happy Thanksgiving and safe travels. Above are our Thanksgiving holiday hours- feel free to stop by today, tomorrow, or Friday and Saturday to browse our extensive collection and to see our 2014 Winter Contemporary Show. The gallery is free and all ages are welcome. With prints and maps ranging from the 15th century to the 21st century, we have something for everyone to enjoy (and great gifts for the holidays).
Mark Jenkins, arts writer for The Washington Post, featured our woodcut and wood engraving show, Ink & Grain, in his most recent column. Follow the link below to read his article, and make sure to stop by the gallery before November 15th to see the show in person.
(Quick note: Our exhibit is the last show reviewed, so it does take some scrolling to get to the write up on Ink & Grain).
Our new October 2014 Showcase has been sent out to our mailing list, and should hit mailboxes this week. The month’s catalog features a wide range of prints and maps from our collection, focusing on woodcuts and wood engravings.
We share 16th century woodcut maps, woodcut portraits from a scarce 18th century volume covering the discovery and exploration of America, and wood engravings from 19th century illustrator and artist Winslow Homer. The famous Fry-Jefferson map of Virginia can be found on page 6 and 7, and is supplemented with additional examples of great 18th century maps of North America. We highlight several striking Currier and Ives small folio landscapes and pair them with a breathtaking and exquisitely-colored impression of Landscape, Fruit and Flowers, published by the lithographic firm in 1862. We round out the catalog with a sampling of early 20th century and contemporary woodcuts, many of which are are featured in our current exhibition Ink & Grain.
Published in both traditional and digital media formats, we are now able to share our fantastic collection in a whole new way. We are already working on our next issue, which should arrive during the holiday season. To receive our next Showcase, just send us your mailing information, via email.
