Columbus Museum of Art Presents Edna Boies Hopkins: Woodblock Prints
Edna Boies Hopkins, American, 1872 – 1937, Purple Asters, not dated (c. 1898 - 1937), Colored woodcut on paper. Thomas Ewing French Collection of Prints, Bequest of Janet French Houston. 1970.043.056.

COLUMBUS, OH.- The Columbus Museum of Art presents the first major museum exhibition of Edna Boies Hopkins, the early 20th century woodblock print artist. On view December 14, 2007 – March 2, 2008, the exhibition features fifty of Hopkins’s most famous works from a range of subjects that include figurative, landscape and floral prints. Hopkins shared her time between Paris, New York, Provincetown, Maine, Cincinnati, and Columbus, where her husband James Roy Hopkins established the Ohio State University College of the Arts.

Hopkins was one of six artists, five of them women, who became known as the “Provincetown Printers.” The group’s major achievement was the invention and perfection of the “white-line” woodblock print. This method, still in use today, allowed for greater speed and freedom in producing prints than the conventional multi-block technique.

“Hopkins’ prints are as accomplished, sophisticated and ultimately important as those of her longer-lived contemporary Blanche Lazzell,” said exhibition curator, Dominique H. Vasseur. “Her preeminent status among other American printmakers is certainly secure.”

Hopkins woodblock prints are found in many Museum collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Cincinnati Art Museum, and the Springfield (Ohio) Museum of Art. The exhibition, organized by the Columbus Museum of Art in cooperation with the Springfield Museum of Art, is a unique opportunity for visitors to discover this remarkable artist and her work. After Columbus, this exhibition will travel to the Springfield Museum of Art and the Provincetown Art Association & Museum.

This exhibition is presented as part of the National Endowment for the Arts American Masterpieces initiative. The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this exhibition with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.

The Columbus Museum of Art creates great experiences with great art for everyone. The Columbus Foundation, the Greater Columbus Arts Council, and the Ohio Arts Council provide ongoing support. The Museum and the Museum Shop are open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm and until 8:30 pm every Thursday. The Palette Café is open for lunch Tuesday through Sunday from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. Museum admission is $6 for adults; $4 for seniors and students 6 and over; and free for members, children 5 and under, and everyone on Sunday. For additional information, call 614-221-4848 or visit
