View From Key Bridge. By Yolanda Frederikse. Stone lithograph, 2011.

Yolanda Frederikse is a new addition to our contemporary collection. Known for her prints and watercolor scenes of the Washington Metropolitan Area, Yolanda is regularly inspired by her environment. Her printmaking includes monotypes, linocuts, and stone lithographs. She works of a studio located in Kensington, Maryland.

She is a Signature Member of the National Watercolor Society since 1984. She has exhibited with the American Watercolor Society and received its Travel Award. In 2000, Frederikse was juried into the Washington Society of Landscape Painters and was later awarded a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities for her measured drawings of 18th century structures in Maryland.

Frederikse has painted extensively in international locals, including Italy, Holland, UK, Bali, Mexico and South Africa, and has led workshops in Portugal. She has exhibited throughout the US and in Shanghai, New Delhi, Cairo, and St. Petersburg. Having received her Bachelors of Fine Arts and a Bachelors in Fine Art Education, as well as being awarded a Master’s Degree from American University in Fine Arts, Yolanda is extremely learned in her craft. She has taught at the university level, and her unique monotype printmaking technique is described in detail with photos in Monotype Mediums and Methods for Painterly Printmaking (Julia Ayres, 1991).

Frederikse regularly shows her work in solo exhibitions. Her latest exhibition, “Before and After Derecho” was at the Washington Printmakers Gallery from October 31 – November 25, 2012. Her print View From Key Bridge (stone lithograph, 2011) was selected for our “2012 Winter Contemporary Show” and remains on view until February 9, 2013.

Artist Statement: “I discovered that my own little postage stamp of native soil was worth writing about,” said author William Faulkner, “and that I would never live long enough to exhaust it.” As an artist and printmaker, I am similarly convinced that I will never tire of my immediate environment. The more familiar I become with my home area, the stronger I feel the need to make it a focus of my art work.

 My passion for nature has led me to landscapes, although I am also attracted by the human figure, which I believe can bring life and a special meaning to my work. My continuing curiosity about Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia, as well as other parts of the mid-Atlantic, the rest of the US and the world, has given rise to prints depicting birds and florals, parks and rural areas, as well as images of city life, always guided by a need for realism.

 I realize that in future years people may see a very different world than I have committed to paper and canvas. My prints and paintings will bear witness to the changes and, I fear, often to irretrievable loss.”

Plan of the City of Washington. By J. Good. Published by J. Good for inclusion in the "Literary Magazine," London. Copper plate engraving, Feb. 1, 1793. On January 24, 1791, President George Washington announced the Congressionally designated permanent location of the national capital, a diamond-shaped ten-mile tract at the confluence of the Potomac and Eastern Branch Rivers. The first five maps were engraved and printed in America, the sixth, seventh and eighth in London. This is the seventh printed view and appeared in the 1793 edition of the "Literary Magazine And British Review," British produced monthly periodical. The rather primitively engraved Eagle and shield cartouche adds a decorative element to this particular map and visually separates it from the American imprints of publishers Thackera & Vallance, Hill and Tiebout. A scarce and unusual map. $4,500.00

2012 Winter Contemporary Show

The Old Print Gallery is pleased to present its 2012 Winter Contemporary Show, which will open this Friday, November 16, 2012. The show will be an assortment of works by both up-and-coming and established printmakers, in several mediums.  Highlights include a series of charged photolithographic landscapes by Sylvie Covey, beautifully involved linocut relief prints by Karima Muyaes and Tenjin Ikeda, and boldly hued prints by local artists Susan Goldman, Philip Bennet, and Joan Krash.

Bottles & Jars I by Peri Schwartz captures the crisp, luminous glow of the winter months and Neighbor & Orion II by Herbert Simon delivers a similarly poignant study of a hushed, nocturnal landscape, thanks to purposeful use of color. Local artists Jake Muirhead and Marti Patchell’s impressive draftsmanship result in intricate and delicate still lifes, elevating the familiar artichoke and cereus blossom in the process. Many of the artists in the 2012 Winter Contemporary Show are new to the Old Print Gallery, and offer a fresh approach to printmaking.

The exhibit opens with a nighttime reception at the Old Print Gallery on Friday, November 16, from 5-8pm. Many of the artists will be in attendance for the opening, to answer questions regarding their work and artistic process. The opening reception is free and open to all ages. The show will remain on view until February 9, 2013.

Selected Artists:  Philip Bennet, Sylvie Covey, Richard T. Davis, Deron Decesare, Yolanda Frederikse, Susan Goldman, Peter Gourfain, Tenjin Ikeda, Joan Krash, Richard Lubell, Paul Marcus, Ed McCluney, Judy Mensch, Jake Muirhead, Karima Muyaes, Marti Patchell, Matt Phillips, Susan Pyzow, Peri Schwartz, Herbert Simon, Ellen Nathan Singer, Hank Virgona, and Steven E. Walker.

“Su-Li Hung & Richard Sloat: 40 Years Together in Art” closes on Saturday

This is the last weekend to see our current exhibit 40 Years Together in Art. The show will be on view until this Saturday, November 10. Our gallery hours today and tomorrow are from 10am to 5:20pm.

Su-Li Hung and Richard Sloat met at the Art Students League in 1971, and married the following year. Now, forty years later, The Old Print Gallery celebrates their creative partnership with a retrospective of each artist’s work. Although their printmaking emerges from two very distinct styles, the show’s sweeping assessment of their art reveals glimpses of related motifs, colors, and textures, as well as shared moments of inspiration.

Philip Bennet’s “Retrospective 1942-2012” on view now at Glenview Mansion Gallery

The Glenview Mansion Gallery, Rockville Civic Center, is presenting an 70 year retrospective of works by Philip Bennet (a printmaker represented by OPG). The show features paintings and monotype prints, including a watercolor painted at age 12, a self-portrait in oil painted at age 13, and over 25 other works in pastel, acrylics, watercolor, collage, and monotypes. Retrospective 1942-2012 runs from November 1 through November 27, 2012.

In his early years, Bennet painted realistic landscape and seascape watercolors and pastels, while filling his sketch books with pen and ink drawings during his travels. He then gravitated to abstract images, and now paints primarily abstracts. Bennet states that “the start of some of my abstracts seems like chaos but by intuitively adding, deleting, and changing lines, marks and shapes, some order is restored.”

Glenview Mansion Gallery is located at 603 Edmonston Drive, Rockville, MD. Gallery hours: Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 9am to 4:30pm. Tuesday, Thursday: 9am-9pm. Closed on all major holidays. Call (240) 314-5004 for recorded directions.
