DESCRIPTION

Brian D. Cohen is the printmaker and founder of Bridge Press, publisher of limited edition artist's books, in Westminster Station, Vermont. He recently received an award for the best book in the Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair and is a blogger for Huffington Post.

He will show 50 etchings based on Renaissance emblems, presenting familiar elements and objects in association with Latin aphorisms and English translation. Brian embraces themes of loss, futility, destruction, and unexpected, redemptive beauty, themes tied to the tradition of printmaking, whose imagery has tends toward critical commentary, often with humor and irony as well.
