Art has no barriers or borders and broadens our idea of what is possible. Durer... Rembrandt... Blake... Goya... Kollwitz... Posada... Cassatt... Hokusai; the great printmakers of the past 300 years easily outlive and transcend whoever happens to be king, dictator, or president. In light of recent political events in the U.S., the CPC renews its commitment to showcasing the best of International artists. Last month, 71 prints from Iran graced our walls, and in the fall the gallery looks forward to featuring the work of 12 printmakers from Thailand. For now, we highlight some of the finest prints in the galaxy.
Through August 31 2017
