“Impressions – the Art of the Print” A national juried exhibition.

“ImPRESSions” is a national juried exhibit of original printmaking art. All printmaking methods are accepted. The goal of the exhibit is to present original printmaking methods and to educate visitors about printmaking as an art form and the difference between the art form of printmaking versus the reproduction of art called a “print.”

JUROR: Jennifer Clarke

Born in the UK. Graduated from Goldsmiths College School of Art, London in sculpture and printmaking. Moved to Denmark and worked for forty years as a conservator of decorative arts. She returned to printmaking in the mid 90’s attending workshops to learn about non-toxic printmaking. Twelve years ago she discovered mezzotint which has become her main medium. She has exhibited her mezzotints in juried shows nationally and internationally, winning several awards for best in show and purchase awards.

In 2016 she moved permanently to the US and in 2020 became an American citizen.
