A collection of recent prints by artists from Íslensk grafík / Icelandic Printmakers Association including etchings, Chine-collé, monoprints, lithographs and electro etchings inspired primarily by Icelandic landscapes and human nature.
This exhibition was made possible through a collaboration with The Boston Printmakers who completed an expedition to Iceland in August of this year and collaborated with Íslensk grafík artists.
The Belmont Gallery of Art will present a companion exhibit featuring additional works by Íslensk grafík artists alongside works by The Boston Printmakers through December 5th.
Íslensk grafík / Icelandic Printmakers Association celebrates its 45th anniversary this year. The Association runs its own gallery and studio in the centre of Reykjavik and serves as an organized interest group whose primary functions are promoting printmaking in Iceland, organizing combined exhibitions for members, and introducing international printmaking to Iceland and Icelandic printmaking abroad. Íslensk grafík has approximately 70 members.
