Posted: November 17, 2010 08:20

  The prints and drawings by Peter Grippe (1912-2002) now on view date from 1942 to 1969. They are shown in association with the Allentown Art Museum which featured the artist's works in a recent show,  Peter Grippe, A Personal Vocabulary .  A member of the American Abstract Artists group, Grippe's prints are all intaglios made at Atelier 17; his ink and watercolor drawings are marvels of American Modernism.
