International Print Center New York presents New Prints 2012/Autumn, on view October 20 - November 17, 2012 at 508 West 26th Street, 5th floor. The show consists of thirty-six pieces by artists at all stages of their careers, selected from over 2,600 submissions. New Prints 2012/Autumn is the forty-third presentation of IPCNY’s New Prints Program, a series of juried exhibitions organized by IPCNY several times each year, featuring prints made within the past twelve months. An illustrated brochure with a curatorial essay by Judith Dobrzynski accompanies the exhibition. The Selections Committee was comprised of Judith Dobrzynski (freelance writer), Raymond Foye (writer, publisher, freelance curator), Erik Hougen (artist, Master Printer at Lower East Side Printshop), David W. Kiehl (Curator of Prints and Special Collections at the Whitney Museum of American Art), Kakyoung Lee (artist) and Janice Oresman (collector and art advisor).

In addition, workshops represented in this show are Lower East Side Printshop (New York, NY) and Center Street Studio (Milton Village, MA).
New Prints 2012/Autumn includes etchings, lithographs, monoprints, as well as sculptural prints, video animation and wall installation. The prints in this show demonstrate outstanding craftsmanship and push the boundaries of traditional printmaking, asking the question: what is a print, and into what new territories can printmaking expand? The pieces in this show vary tremendously, from playful and inventive to romantic, didactic and meditative.
