Program Description

Event Details

Artwork on paper can be an excellent and affordable way to build a collection of enduring value and beauty. Kimberly Henrikson, Executive Director of the Center for Contemporary Printmaking, will present an overview of the print medium – from printmaking methods and the printmaking studio to the ‘how to’ of buying and assembling a collection of fine art prints. Henrikson will use an assortment of unframed prints to explain the differences, the process behind them, and their relative value in the art market.

This program coincides with the final week of the exhibition currently on view in the Library’s Lightburn Gallery, Printmaking: Bringing Historic Processes to the Present.

Kimberly Henrikson is Executive Director at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking (CCP) in Norwalk. For more than 15 years, she has been involved with the Print Club of New York, where she holds the position of Membership chair after eight years as President for the organization. She also serves on the National Advisory Council for the Palmer Museum of Art at Penn State University, and the Advisory Board for the Norwalk Art Space.
