Mitchell Gallery printmaking exhibition opens on March 9th

Explore an extraordinary collection of prints by eight Washington, D.C. area artists in a new exhibition at the Mitchell Gallery, St. John’s College, on view March 9 – April 21.

Andis Applewhite, Jenny Freestone, Pauline Jakobsberg, Lee Newman, Margaret Adams Parker, Terry Svat, Ellen Verdon Winkler and Max-Karl Winkler provide a fascinating and engaging range of printmaking techniques and subjects. Delicate etchings and aquatints by Freestone, Newman, and Ellen Winkler provide a good juxtaposition to the fine detail of the large woodblock prints by Max-Karl Winkler, Svat’s sculptural collographs, and Applewhite’s expressive etchings. The haunting drypoint and etching prints by Jakobsberg and Parker provide an opportunity for reflection and broad interpretations for both the subject and the technique.

Printmaking is an ever-changing medium. This collective of artists use the traditional printmaking processes, (best known through Intaglio, Relief, and Woodcut), which serve as a basis for their creations.

It is these forms of specialized hand-pulled prints that have paved the way for the digital world. All of the artists enjoy a reputation for their creative and innovative techniques and are included in many major museums, including the National Gallery of Art, Library of Congress, Metropolitan Museum of Art and other important institutions.

To complement this exhibition, the Mitchell Gallery will host an Artists Panel Discussion on Sunday, March 10 at 3 p.m. and a lecture by Christopher With, Ph.D., current president of the Washington Print Club and (retired) Lecturer for Adult Education at the National Gallery of Art, will be held on Sunday, March 17 at 3 p.m.

For more information about the exhibit and related events, or questions about the Mitchell Gallery, call 410-626-2556 or email [email protected]. Gallery hours are 12—5 p.m., Tuesday – Sunday. Closed Mondays.
