Working Proofs: A Revelation
September 10 - October 19, 2013, Crown Point Press, San Francisco, CA

Crown Point Press is pleased to announce two exhibitions: Yes, No, Maybe: Artists Working at Crown Point Press, a major exhibition at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. and a concurrent show in our San Francisco gallery, Working Proofs: A Revelation. Both exhibitions though different from each other, highlight the artistic process by revealing some of the decisions made by the artists during their time in the printmaking studio. Preliminary impressions, known as working proofs record deliberate or serendipitous occurrences and reveal changes and corrections before an image is considered complete, and both exhibitions feature working proofs alongside final prints, providing a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse into the creative process.
