The maps also show footprints of structures, color-coding for types of construction, lines for utilities, and more.

Color coding and symbols are explained in a table on each map. Each individual map is for sale, at $125.00 per map. Average sheet size 34 x 24 1/2″ (863 x 609 mm).

Capital Art Fair

The 2012 Capital Art Fair will take place in Arlington, VA, at the Holiday Inn-Rosslyn Westpark Hotel during the first weekend of April. A successor to the Washington International Print Fair and the Washington Print Fair, the Capital Art Fair is now in its third year of bringing collectable and desirable art to the Washington, DC, area. This year, the fair boasts 22 distinguished art dealers from across the United States and Canada.

Blur by Philip BennetThe Old Print Gallery will be at the fair, exhibiting mostly contemporary and early 20th century work by DC artists. Our selection will include a collection of new prints, recently acquired by The Old Print Gallery. Some are very bold and graphic, like prints by Susan Goldman and Philip Bennet. Others include new drypoints by Jake Muirhead and a series of aquatint and etchings by Marti Patchell. Of course, we will also bring a varied selection of Washington scenes (both old and new) and a sampling of our map collection.

Visitors to the fair will find thousands of works on paper from great master prints to cutting edge, contemporary pieces. The original prints, paintings, drawings, and photographs span over 500 years of creative expression, offering an impressive and expansive collection to DC art collectors.

The Capital Art Fair presents an invaluable opportunity, both in access and convenience, to the seasoned art collector, as well as those looking to break into the market. It is the only art fair in the Washington, DC, area where an extraordinary range of fine art will be available for collectors, museums, and the curious to purchase. It also gives a chance for the vibrant DC art community to interact and talk with exhibitors and dealers who are highly respected in the field, many of whom are well known to the curators of DC museums and established members of the International Fine Print Dealers Association.
