Eleventh Biennial National Print Show

The Payne Gallery is pleased to host its Eleventh Biennial Print Show, a show of original prints created within the last three years by printmakers from thoughout the United States. The works submitted range from those created in traditional, centuries-old techniques such as the woodcut, popularized in the late 1400s by Albrecht Durer, to those created with cutting-edge computer technology. Printmaking techniques such as linocut, lithograph, serigraph, etching, intaglio, and monoprint are also represented. Three Purchase Awards of $500 each were chosen. These works will be added to the Moravian College Permanent Art Collection.

Three Purchase Awards of $500 were awarded to the following artists:

    Mark D. Sisson, Stillwater, OK, for "Portrait of D. Mills / Goldilocks"
    (reduction woodcut)

    Tina Madonia, Slatington, PA, for "Hidden Path II" (monoprint)

    Brian Kreydatus, Philadelphia, PA, for "Diane on Couch" (etching)

The show was juried by Sidney Tillim, a member of the art faculty at Bennington College for over thirty years. His figurative paintings have been exhibited at such prestigious venues as the Wadsworth Atheneum, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. He has been a contributing editor for Arts Magazine and Artforum and is the recipient of grants from the Ingram-Merrill Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.

One Director's Choice Award of $500 was selected by Prof. Les Reker, Director of Payne Gallery:
