2018 Delta National Small Prints Exhibition
January 18 - February 21, 2018
The Delta National Small Prints Exhibition was born of a deep respect and passion for printmaking in a small format. The originator, Evan Lindquist, a master engraver whose work most often has been relatively diminutive, conceived of the show in 1996. The juror this year selected 60 powerful prints, the majority of which are quite small, even for this show. Her vision for the exhibition embraces this minimal size and proves artwork does not require a grand scale to command and hold our attention. The works in the exhibition range from traditional imagery and printmaking techniques such as engraving and lithography to monotypes and experimental print mediums.
The 2018 DNSPE juror was Mary Weaver Chapin, Curator of Prints and Drawings at Portland Art Museum. She reviewed hundreds of pieces to make her selections and determine which artworks would receive awards.
