“Learning from Laborintus,”
August 30 – September 30, 2018
Saturday, Sept. 8
Four artists / printmakers from Washington, DC are travelling to Rome as part of a 2018 Sister Cities Grant for a week in April. There, the American artists will workshop etching / engraving techniques at laborintus, an artist enclave at Corviale, a large public housing complex. Their goals are to bring greater exposure to fine-art intaglio and printmaking, and to foster cultural exchange.
The work they create in Rome will be exhibited at the Washington Printmakers Gallery in September, 2018, plus work by Roman master printmakers with whom they worked.
In addition to the opening on September 8, we will schedule an artist talk where we will Skype-in some of the Roman artists.
All of these activities are funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
