It was a full house for the group show “Print” at Woodward Gallery in the Lower East Side. What I really liked about this group show was the mixture between superstars and fresh new names showing side by side. Print features newsprint, blueprint, xerox, lithography, offset lithography, screen-printing, woodcut, monotype, giclee, etching and other methods by a variety of artist. My personal favorites are the Francis Bacon Triptych 1983, Girl by Swoon 2009, and Army of One Homage to RH 2012. If you’re looking to take-up such activities then you may want to start small. Work along side a Managed Print Services company to practice on the PC before turning your creation into real life!
