2012 Winter Contemporary Show

The Old Print Gallery is pleased to announce our Winter Contemporary Show, which will open on January 27, 2012 and run until March 10, 2012. Over twenty different artists, who use printmaking as their primary medium for artistic expression, were selected for this show.

Highlights include prints by Robert Birmelin, whose prints mimic the fleeting shifts of focus and discord as past memories and current visual stimuli fight wrestle for attention and acknowledgment in the mind. Also included are works by Gerald Scheck, whose monochromatic prints feature uninhabited scenes so haunting and luminescent that they evoke a sense of otherworldliness. Prints by NY artist Takamune Ishiguro also excel, with fragmented and corroded lines sensuously folded into restorative sections of light and brilliance. The prints chosen for the show resonate with skill and intention, and reflect the current eclecticism of contemporary printmaking.

The exhibit will open with a nighttime reception on Friday, January 27, from 5-8pm at the Old Print Gallery, located in the heart of Georgetown. Free wine and light refreshments will be served, and the event is open to all ages.

Selected Artists: Linda Adato, William H. Behnken, Robert Birmelin, Michael DiCerbo, Lisa Dinhofer, Jenny Freestone, Red Grooms, Takamune Ishiguro, Stanley Kaplan, Robert Kipniss, Masaaki Noda, Alan Petrulis, Matt Phillips, Gerald Scheck, Nikolas Schiller, Ellen Nathan Singer, Richard Sloat,  Emily Trueblood, Bruce Waldman, Steven E.
