Gay Pilgrims Go to Philadelphia
I'm happy to report that this print, God Blesses John Alexander and Thomas Roberts 1637, has been selected for inclusion in The Print Center's 85th Annual International Competition: Printmaking, which opens Saturday, June 4, at the Print Center in Philadelphia. Curated by Emi Eu, Director of Singapore Tyler Print Institute, and Sarah Suzuki, Assistant Curator of Prints and Illustrated Books at Museum of Modern Art in NY, the show will hang at the Print Center from June 4 – July 30, 2011, and then move on to Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts & Sciences (LBIF) in Loveladies, NJ, for September 9 – November 1, 2011.
I'm not so happy to report that I won't be able to attend the opening because I'll be in Japan for the 1st International Mokuhanga Conference. It's an embarrassment of riches, I know, but I would love to see the Print Center and meet the curators and some of the other artists in the show. Many thanks to The Print Center and the two jurors for selecting my work.
