The Armory Show - The Handmakers' Tale: American Prints and the Women Who Made Them
136 East 16th Street
New York, NY 10003
March 5, 2020 - March 8, 2020
The American post-war period, often referred to as the American Print Renaissance, saw the birth of a group of important and influential printmaking workshops, many of which were owned and operated by women as well as important masterworks of printmaking created by women artists. “The Handmakers’ Tale,” will examine, through the artworks exhibited and an accompanying e-catalogue, the ground-breaking work and legacy of these woman workshop founders, master printers, and artists. The exhibition will focus on the businesses they built, the renowned artists they printed with and mentored, the works they made, and the artistic and business models they developed that proved incredibly influential.
