2015 marks our 35rd year in business. From the start, we have had an affinity for the woodblock medium, especially color woodblock prints. In 1986 we held the first retrospective on the prints of Margaret Jordan Patterson. In 1987 we were fortunate enough to acquire a large collections of original Provincetown printing blocks and prints by then forgotten artist Ora Inge Maxim. Later that year we purchased a large group of similar blocks by important Provincetown artists Agnes Weinrich and Karl Knaths. This grouping of blocks led to an exhibit we curated at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum in March 1988, “Provincetown Printing Blocks,” the first museum exhibit devoted to printing matrices.
For the past 20 years or so we have included woodblock prints from the Arts & Crafts era (c. 1895-1930) in our inventory. We exhibit a large selection yearly at the Grove Park Inn Arts & Crafts Conference & Show in Asheville, North Carolina and smaller groupings at other shows and on our website. We have written and led discussion groups on the subject. We have also published articles on the Provincetown Print.
We continue to enjoy the quest to find the wonderful and unusual in all media. Whatever comes our way comes your way at the Capital Art Fair, our other shows and in our yearly catalog issued every September. Please peruse our website for our varied offerings and please contact us with special wants as we are always on the hunt.
