In the Maitland Art Center:
Pressed Editions: Experimental Contemporary Prints presents the rich complexity of, and technical and material innovations in contemporary printmaking. It showcases works by innovative individual printmakers based in Central Florida and by UCF’s Flying Horse Editions, a nationally acclaimed printmaking-publishing research studio that has collaborated with internationally renowned artists. This exhibition comprises mixed media works, 3D multiples, and prints made with experimental processes of such traditional printmaking techniques as intaglios and photogravures, as well as with a use of digital technologies and unconventional handling of materials. In conjunction, J. André Smith’s printing press and some of his etching plates, which have rarely been shown before, will be also on view.
In the Maitland Historical Museum:
Etched in Time – Explore the history of nineteenth and twentieth-century etchings used in print as a way to share images long before the age of Instagram. The exhibition features J. Andre Smith’s printing press used to create prints from etched metal plates, which include images of Smith’s experiences in WWI and several trips throughout Europe. The exhibit also contains several etchings created by Smith’s contemporaries like Ernest Roth, Milton Avery and Thomas Hart Benton, as well as etchings inspired by the Florida landscape.
