Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop Exhibition


I just learned that my latest print, American Bible Story, has been accepted for inclusion in the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop (RBPMW) 6th Annual International Juried Exhibition in New York City. The November 3 - December 5 exhibition is scheduled to coincide with the IFPDA Print Fair and New York Fine Art Print Week. The exhibit was juried by David Kiehl, Curator of Prints, Whitney Museum of American Art.

RBPMW, now part of the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, was founded by Robert Blackburn (1920-2003) who was born in Summit, New Jersey, and was known for his work as a printer, a collaborator, and a lithographer. Blackburn worked with some of my favorite artists -- Jasper Johns, Elizabeth Catlett, and Helen Frankenthaler -- in addition to creating his own personal artwork. RBPMW is now a cooperative workshop that also does contract printing and hosts classes and workshops.

Thanks so much! I'm very happy about this.
A note to Franklin - I took no photos at our workshop, so haven't done a recap, which I usually do. Liz got some pix, though, which I hope to pick up this week. Glad you enjoyed it!
