The Wrocław School of Printmaking: Faculty of the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Fine Art and Design
Chicago, IL 60602
The Wroclaw School of Printmaking, a wide-ranging exhibition that fills all three Michigan Avenue Galleries, features print-based works by faculty members of the Printmaking Department at the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław, Poland.
The exhibition provides an extensive overview of the variety of printmaking techniques and sources of inspiration employed by the artists of the Wrocław School, and suggests the scope of the international printmaking arts scene when viewed in conjunction with the current exhibition of Chicago printmakers featured in Pulled, Pressed & Printed, Chicago at Expo 72.
The Wrocław School of Printmaking was previously shown at two American venues in 2009: Pienkow Gallery in Knoxville, TN, and Rowe Arts Gallery at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. At the Chicago Cultural Center, the exhibit features works previously shown in 2009, juxtaposed with one new work by each artist.
