KADS New York presents the second annual Celebrating Print 2014 - an international exhibition of contemporary fine art prints and paper objects. Celebrating Print 2014 includes a juried exhibition, CPC 2014 Challenge and a selection of 20th Century Czech prints.

Selected by New York-based artist and printmaker Eva Nikolova, Celebrating Print 2014 introduces thirty-three projects by twenty-four artists from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany and the USA.  The selection represents a variety of printmaking techniques, including traditional intaglio, relief, stone lithography, silkscreen, monotype and collage.

Highlights of the exhibition include Kamila Stanclova’s mysterious etchings “Compliment is Something like a Kiss Through the Veil (V.Hugo)” and “Dance with Wolves”, Jana Hubatkova’s multicolor gestural lithographs “Toward the Stone” and “Water into Water”, Magda Korsinsky’s silkscreen “Bond” and Milos Michalek’s layered wood print “One”, among others.

 The Celebrating Print 2014 Challenge: Homage to Jiri Kolar features paper objects by seven New York-based printmakers, print instructors and Master Printers: Arnold Brooks, Pepe Coronado, Vijay Kumar, Katerina Kyselica, Paula Praeger, Moses Ros-Suarez and Larry Schulte.

Five sought-after intaglio prints by renowned Czech artist Jiri Anderle, including “Girl with a Pearl Necklace, After Vermeer” (1981) and “Monsieur Riviere Entre Nous” (1975), will be on view in an adjacent exhibition space, accompanied by etchings by Jindrich Pilecek and a surrealistic lithograph by Josef Liesler.

A full-color catalog will accompany the exhibition and will be available to purchase at KADS New York. A Quantarex Cash Award in the amount of $250 and BBLA Cash Award in the amount of $200 will be awarded to two artists for outstanding fine art print selected by Eva Nikolova. The Awards will be announced at the opening reception.

The Celebrating Print 2014 competition is organized under the auspices of the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in New York and the Consulate General of the Slovak Republic in New York, with the media support of the Czech Center New York.

KADS New York’s exhibitions are available for tour.  For additional information, please contact Katerina Kyselica at:, or call 540-538-2931.

Celebrating Print is an annual survey of contemporary fine art prints, focusing on recent works by artists of Czech and Slovak backgrounds.  Celebrating Print is organized by KADS New York with the mission to raise awareness of the tradition of Central European printmaking, encourage explorations in contemporary original prints as well as promote Czech and Slovak printmaking.  The first Celebrating Print Exhibition entitled “Masters of Czech and Slovak Printmaking” took place in December 2013, presenting over sixty fine art prints - etchings, lithographs, woodcuts and mixed media prints from twenty-seven renowned Czech and Slovak artists.
