The Wakeley Gallery at Illinois Wesleyan University, located in Bloomington, Illinois, will host the exhibition Recent Prints and Projects from Manneken Press, February 27 – March 30 2017.

The exhibition will include fine art prints and portfolios produced by an array of international artists at Manneken Press from 2014 to the present. A reception for the exhibition will be held in the gallery on March 2 from 5:00 – 6:00 pm.

The exhibition showcases Manneken Press, a fine art press and print publisher located in Bloomington, IL. The exhibition will include examples of contemporary printmaking, including etchings, aquatints, woodcuts, lithographs, photogravures, and portfolios, as well as unique monotypes and monoprints. Artists in the exhibition include Richard Hull, Judy Ledgerwood, Gary Justis, Mary Judge, Jack Davidson, Brenda Zappitell, Carlos Andrade, Kate Petley and Philip Van Keuren.

Highlights of the exhibition will include “Toward What Sun? Volume I”, a portfolio of ten photogravures by Dallas-based artist Philip Van Keuren, published in January of 2016, and “Untitled”, a mixed-media monotype by Columbian artist Carlos Andrade, published in November of 2016, in which vernacular materials such as plastic flags and string are incorporated into the print. The monotype by Brenda Zappitell will have been made only three weeks prior to the opening of the exhibition. Viewers will have the opportunity to see the work of artists from the local community (Gary Justis) and from as far away as Spain (Jack Davidson) and South America (Carlos Andrade). Though the primary focus of the exhibition will be abstraction, the exhibition will be a snapshot of current practices in printmaking, and viewers will have the chance to see contemporary works of art realized in traditional print media. “to open widows”, a concurrent exhibition by Bill Conger, will be in the adjacent Merwin Gallery.

The Merwin & Wakeley Galleries are located on the ground floor of the Ames School of Art building, Illinois Wesleyan University, Bloomington, IL.

Jonathan Higgins is exhibiting metalpoint drawings in point/line/shape/form, a 5-person exhibition at the McLean County Art Center in Bloomington, IL. The exhibition runs through February 18, with a reception for the artists on Friday, January 20, 5 – 7 pm.

Philip Van Keuren’s 2016 photogravure “Shrub II” is included in Idols And Impossible Structures: New Prints 2017/Winter at the IPCNY, 508 W 26th Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY. Exhibition dates are January 19 – April 1 2017, with an opening reception on Thursday January 19, 6 – 8 pm.

A monotype by Sarah Smelser was included in the Nasty Women Exhibition, January 12 – 15th at the Knockdown Center, Maspeth, Queens, NYC. The show was “a group exhibition that serves to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights”. Proceeds from the show raised more than $35,000 to benefit Planned Parenthood. This exhibition was the first of at least twenty seven similarly themed and titled shows that will take place in venues across the United States and as far away as Brussels, Melbourne and Amsterdam in the coming months. The exhibition received a lot of press, including notices in the Huffington Post and Hyperallergic.

Philip Van Keuren’s photogravure portfolios are now available.

Toward What Sun? Volume I, ten photogravures by Philip Van Keuren, are now available in portfolios.

Clamshell boxes to house the ten photogravures in Volume I, published by Manneken Press earlier in 2016, have been produced by Jace Graf of Cloverleaf Studio, Austin, TX. The beautifully crafted boxes are covered in silvery-gray bookcloth with the title in black ink debosssed on the front, and also include letterpress-printed pages with the titles of each print and a colophon with information about the project.

Philip Van Keuren’s photographic images are prompted by everyday observations that reveal the world as sublimely beautiful while simultaneously unknowable.  Since 2009 Manneken Press has been making copper photogravure plates from Van Keuren’s 35mm negatives. In 2016 Van Keuren and Manneken Press co-published ten of the photogravure prints for Volume I of  Toward What Sun?,  the first of four planned volumes of editions printed  from the archive of the 40 photogravure plates that have been made to date. Seven prints from each edition are available singly, with the remaining five available as complete sets of 10 prints housed in a custom portfolio case. A new volume of ten prints will be issued annually.

The images are 12 x 8 inches, hand-printed from copper photogravure plates on Hahnemuhle Copperplate paper in editions of 12. Portfolio dimensions are 19″ x 14 3/4″ x 1″. View all of the prints in Toward What Sun?, Volume I here.

“The Art of Photogravure” exhibition in NYC

By | Jonathan Higgins, Philip Van Keuren, photogravure | No Comments

An exhibition of photogravure prints highlighting the work of four photographers and their master printers opens this week in New York City.

A new group show, The Art of Photogravure, opens at 1251 Avenue of the Americas, NYC, on April 18. In this unique presentation, the gallery celebrates the photogravure prints of four internationally renowned photographers: Roy DeCarava, Lee Freidlander, Philip Van Keuren and Kenro Izu, and their collaborators: master print makers Jonathan Higgins (Manneken Press), Lothar Osterburg (LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies) and Paul Taylor (Renaissance Press).

The photogravure method of making hand-pulled prints has attracted photographers to intaglio print-making since the 19th century. It is considered by many to be one of the finest methods of reproducing photographic images in ink on paper. Combining the realistic detail of a photograph and the richly pigmented inks typical of a fine art print, photogravure etchings make a special impression, an unparalleled visual experience.

The Art of Photogravure, April 18 – July 18 is presented by RCSFA, MFA and Hines for 1251 Avenue of the Americas, New York, 10021. The gallery is in the lobby of 1251 Avenue of the Americas, 49th & 6th Avenue. It is open to the pubic M-F: 7 a.m. -7 p.m.
