This summer, the Washington Print Club is holding its biennial exhibition, celebrating the prints of its members. The Club, founded in 1964, has been holding shows every two years at various galleries, such as the National Gallery, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, George Washington University, and the National Building Museum. This year, the exhibition is being held June 6-August 16 at American University’s Katzen Art Center.
The theme of the exhibit is “Love, Let Me Count the Ways,” a play on the famous Shakespearean line. The Club aims to show “the many ways works on paper can evoke thoughts relating to love.” Simply parouse the hallways to get a glimpse of this very unique ensemble: from a print involving a woman embracing a Coca-Cola bottle to a young Geisha woman looking seductively off of the page, this is an experience you don’t want to miss.
The Katzen Art Center is open Tuesday through Sunday 11 am-4pm.
