NARROWSBURG - The Delaware Valley Arts Alliance kicks off its 2020 exhibition series with “Pulling Prints,” a curated group printmaking show opening on Saturday, February 8 with a reception from 3 to 5 p.m. at DVAA, 37 Main St, Narrowsburg.
An artists' talk will take place on Tuesday, February 18 from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. in the gallery.
“Pulling Prints” will be on view in DVAA's Alliance Gallery through March 14. The exhibition and related events are free and open to the public.
“As DVAA's gallery director, I know many artists in our area have presses and make a wide variety of beautiful prints. I have always wanted to have a large group printmaking exhibition that highlights the various forms of this versatile media,” says Rocky Pinciotti. “I was lucky enough to have Judith Bodman agree to curate this show.”
The exhibition “Pulling Prints” will showcase printmaking in all its artistic forms: woodcuts, mono prints, etching, aquatint, silkscreen/serigraphs, lithography, linocuts, and even solar based prints. This celebration of mediums and images by guest curator Judith Bodman, a printmaker herself, includes prints from 55 printmakers new and established, far and wide, including Colescott Award winning artists, each with their own style and printmaking media.
“I hope this exhibition will educate the public, stir up conversations about printmaking, and hopefully create excitement about this amazing art medium of hand-pulled prints,' says curator Judith Fisher-Bodman, an artist from Blooming Grove, PA who works in many mediums, including etchings, solar plate printing, linocuts, woodcut prints, wood engraving, and painting. “I have a huge passion for all forms of printmaking, and I'm always learning new printmaking methods,” she says.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, Judith received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking from Indiana University of PA. She also spent time studying etching in Florence, Italy and looks forward to running printmaking workshops next year at Peters Valley School of Crafts in Layton, NJ. For the last 10 years she has also been teaching high school students about printmaking.
