INK Miami Report

It was wonderful to be at INK Miami at the Dorchester on Collins Avenue, Miami Beach! And with the glaring exception of rain-by-the-bucket on Saturday morning, we had one beautiful Florida day after another.   In our favorite Room 156 we arranged several concentrated overviews. These small exhibitions began with American Mural Studies by MORDI GASSNER, AXEL HORN, DOROTHY BROWDY KUSHNER, BEN SHAHN, and with an enormous proposal for the St. Louis Post Office, The Miner’s Life by HUGH MESIBOV.   Work by MESIBOV will also figured in an installation of paintings, drawings, and prints,...

30 Years of Snow: The Calligraphy of Anna Pinto is on view in the Upper Gallery of the Hoboken Historical Museum, 1301 Hudson Street, through December 31, 2017.

The authors include Thoreau, Maya Angelou, and Wendy Wasserstein, and stretch back to the eighteenth...

More on the NY PRINT FAIR

 This is a shot made at the Print Fair on October 26, 2017, shortly after I presented the IFPDA Book Award to Antony Griffiths for The Print Before Photography, his groundbreaking tome that has hit the town by storm. He probably doesn’t remember this, but I was also the presenter of his IFPDA Achievement Award in, I think, 2007.   Those are Keepers of the British Museum with me: From left to right is Stephen Coppel, Assistant Keeper Modern Prints and Drawings After 1880, ST, Antony Griffths, former Keeper of Prints and Drawings, and Hugo Chapman, Keeper of Prints and Drawings. Coppel...
