NEW YORK, NY.- In its on-going effort to celebrate the fine art of printmaking, The International Fine Print Dealers Association announces that New York Print Week will take place November 3-9, 2014 with a round of special exhibitions at numerous museums and libraries, as well as cultural institutions, satellite fairs, and IFPDA-member galleries throughout metropolitan New York.

"New York Print Week extends the enthusiasm generated by the Print Fair to numerous venues throughout New York City where people can engage with artists, collectors, and curators to enrich their knowledge of printmaking," says Michele Senecal, executive director of IFPDA. "It also affords them the opportunity to view prints in context with paintings, drawings or sculpture.

According to Ms. Senecal, in addition to the flagship IFPDA Print Fair and satellite fairs, the following museum and galleries will mount shows. "We are privileged that these important cultural institutions are part of New York Print Week."

Among the many print exhibitions that will be on view in museums are: The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters, Museum of Modern Art; Kandinsky: Before Abstraction:1901-1911, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Sublime: The Prints by J.W.M. Turner and Thomas Moran, at The New York Public Library; Dürer, Rembrandt, Tiepolo: The Jansma Master Prints Collection from the Grand Rapids Art Museum, Museum of Biblical Art; New Prints 2014/Autumn, International Print Center New York; and InkSplash 2014, Rockaway Artists Alliance Studio 7 Gallery, Fort Tilden, Gateway National Recreation Area, Rockaway Point, NY 11695.

In addition to the IFPDA Print Fair, which opens for its five-day run on November 5, at the Park Avenue Armory, several IFPDA members will mount exhibitions at their galleries. They include:

New Projects, Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl will feature the four new editions by major artists from Gemini's stable: John Baldessari: The News; Ellsworth Kelly: Blue Curve / Red Curve; Richard Serra: Double Rift V; Richard Tuttle: Nature/Media, Blue in the Corner.

Known for her work investigating space and light in the sculptural realm, Alyson Shotz's 3 recent bodies of work Topographic Iterations, Recumbent Folds, and Imaginary Sculptures will be front and center at the Carolina Nitsch Project Room. Each print in this series began with a large sheet of Japanese Masa paper, which was crumpled and then photographed at high resolution. Recumbent Folds, are another variation on these playful manipulations of planar forms. These ceramic sculptures started as simple slabs of rolled porcelain clay, which are rolled around a tube and then dropped onto a table. The resulting undulating forms capture the force of gravity in motion, almost as if taking a snap shot of this physical activity. Imaginary Sculptures are a suite of 20 enamel plaques with text describing a sculpture that the viewer pictures in their head.

Pace Prints, Chelsea will present Kenny Scharf Monoprints, a series of new monoprints by Kenny Scharf, dubbed the "spiritual son of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring." Growing up in California in the '60s, Scharf was fascinated by TV and by that era's conception of the future (The Flintstones and the Jetson's are two major influences on hiswork.) These childhood influences figure prominently in his surrealistic, pop style work which deals with earth and space, the natural and the artificial.

James Rosenquist F-111 (South, West, North, East) and Drawings from the ‘70s: Senior & Shopmaker Gallery spotlights James Rosenquist’s F-111 (South, West, North, East), a four-part, 290 inch lithograph with screenprint printed in 1974 at Styria Studio, New York and one of the outstanding Pop prints of the era. Accompanying the print will be a selection of the artist’s dynamic charcoal and graphite drawings from the same time period. James Rosenquist, one of the key figures of the Pop Art movement, has been an influential printmaker from his early experiments with lithography in 1965 at Universal Limited Art Editions in Long Island to his innovations in recent years with large-scale multimedia prints. One of his seminal works on paper is the tour-de-force F-111 (South, West, North, East) of 1974, published by Petersburg Press and created nearly a decade after the monumental multi-panel painting of the same title. In F-111, the artist juxtaposes the disparate images of GE light bulbs, a Goodyear tire, a nuclear explosion, canned spaghetti, and the head of a blond girl under a hairdryer to anxious effect, offering a complex reflection of American society of the era.

Jacob Kainen: Very Large Monotypes: From 1935 to 1942, Kainen worked for the Graphic Arts Division of the Works Progress Administration’s (WPA) Federal Arts Project, a New Deal program that employed artists. He was able to learn lithography, etching, woodcut, silkscreen, and other media as part of this project while saving his personal time for painting. He soon began to enjoy printmaking as his skills and confidence increased and he found he could bring his painting skills to bear on the medium by working freely, expressively, and seeking new means of introducing textures and tones.

Pat Keck Color Woodcuts: A Survey 1994-2014: A four-day exhibition of color woodcuts made over the last 20 years by printmaker and sculptor, Pat Keck. Keck creates wooden life-sized figures, articulated and clothed for theatrical purposes. The woodcuts are designed independently but often reference the sculptures.
