Recent & Upcoming Programs for Washington Print Club Members


Saturday, March 10 - Behind-the-Scenes Print Viewing with Greg Jecmen, National Gallery of Art

Greg Jecmen, Associate Curator of Old Master Prints and Drawings, is a long-time member of the WPC and the chief inspiration behind the Directory of Selected Public Collections of Works of Art on Paper in the United States published by the WPC in 2004. Greg is retiring from the NGA later this year after 34 years of service and has kindly agreed to offer a special print room program to WPC members. Greg will be showing a selection of his favorite works, which are wide and varied, and include interesting stories.


Friday, April 6 - Talk and viewing of the exhibition, A War to End All Wars? 100 Years Since World War I in the Booth Family Center for Special Collections, Georgetown University Library.

The illustrated lecture will be given by guest curator Elizabeth Prelinger, Georgetown's Keyser Family Professor of Art History. The exhibition co-curator, LuLen Walker, will present additional prints not included in the exhibition. The show explores art, culture, and history by assembling an exciting variety of objects-from prints and posters to poetry and anti-gas eye shields
.

Wednesday, June 27 - Sharing Images: Renaissance Prints Into Maiolica and Bronze, The National Gallery of Art.

Jonathan Bober, Andrew W. Mellon Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings, leads a tour of the exhibition, which is inspired by the acquisition of the important William A. Clark maiolica (glazed Italian ceramics) collection from the Corcoran Gallery of Art. The exhibition brings together some 90 objects to highlight the impact of Renaissance prints on maiolica and bronze plaquettes, the two media most dramatically influenced by the new technology of image replication.
