Since 2004, The Washington Print Club has joined with the Washington Printmakers Gallery and its nonprofit arm, the Washington Print Foundation, to award an annual Excellence in Printmaking student prize. The aim of this award is to encourage printmaking and the use of traditional, non-digital techniques.
Our 2016 Exhibit
Excellence in Printmaking
February 3-27, 2016
A regional survey of print programs.
Selected work by students at four area schools.
WPG was excited to present a survey of outstanding emerging artists from some of the region’s most prestigious printmaking departments. This exhibit featured student work from three colleges and one high school: Anne Arundel Community College, Bowie State University, George Washington University Corcoran School, and the Duke Ellington School for the Arts. This is the first year a high school has been included.
Each school juried their students’ prints and selected the work shown. A variety of techniques are represented including relief, silkscreen, monotype, and intaglio. The works showcased a wealth of new talent, ideas and technical skills.
