Crown Point Press: The Art of Etching

February 25, 2006August 27, 2006

Crown Point Press’s accomplishments over 43 years as one of America’s foremost contemporary print publishers are celebrated in this exhibition of 35 prints by 16 artists, among them Chuck Close, Nathan Oliveira, Sol LeWitt, Shazia Sikander, Richard Tuttle, and Laura Owens. Crown Point specializes in etching techniques, most of which have existed for hundreds of years, and which the press has promoted as a vehicle for contemporary artistic approaches. Crown Point founder and director, Kathan Brown, helped organize the show according to the creative principles (or “magic secrets”) that have guided artists in making prints at her workshop since 1962.
