Washington Area Printmakers’ 2010 Original Print Calendar at PSU Lamson Library

February 3rd, 2011 by Adam


Plymouth, N.H.–Prints from the 31st annual Washington Area Printmakers’ Original Print Calendar, the 2010 edition, are on display at Plymouth State University’s Lamson Library through March 31.


Juror LuLen Walker selected prints in a variety of styles and subjects for the exhibition. Walker is art collection curator in the Department of Special Collections at Georgetown University’s Lauinger Library.

Walker says the Original Print Calendar has grown in stature with collectors in this country and abroad. Former iterations are housed in both the Smithsonian and the Library of Congress.

Calendar organizers Constance R. Grace and Betty Ann MacDonald explain that “An original print is a fine art process that produces multiples. In no sense is an original print a copy or a reproduction. Each print is an original. In this collection, all artists have hand-pulled their own prints.” Prints are made on the finest quality paper and affixed to the calendar pages with acid-free linen tape.

Contact Jennifer W. Green, digital projects librarian at Lamson Library for information about this exhibition, which she curated.

General information about events at Plymouth State University is available a ThisWeek@PSU.
