Works of art by Cameron University senior Rebecca Dierickx-Taylor and Professor of Art Katherine Liontas-Warren have been accepted into the Boston Printmakers 2011 North American Print Biennial, one of the oldest and most prestigious print shows in the country. Dierickx-Taylor and Liontas-Warren’s works were among the 149 selected from 2,064 entries. The juried exhibition will open on February 27, 2011 and run through May 1, 2011 at The Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham, Mass.
Dierickx-Taylor’s “Still Standing at 442,” a linoleum print, and Liontas-Warren’s “Bird Study III” and “Bird Study VI”, both 28” x 22” Intaglio drypoints, were selected by juror Jim Dine for inclusion in the show. Dine is a contemporary painter and printmaker who is associated with two prominent movements in American Art—as a creator of Happenings with Allan Kaprow, Claes Oldenburg, and Robert Whitman, and with the development of Pop art in the early 1960s. He has had a major retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art, a print retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, and many solo museum exhibitions in Europe and the United States.
More than $10,000 is available in juror-designated purchase and materials prizes. In addition, the Boston Printmakers North American Biennial generates a large number of sales through Patron purchases. The Boston Printmakers’ Purchase awards go into permanent collections at The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, MA and The Boston Public Library Print Collection.
