The Spiritual Dimension in Czech Printmaking featured 33 exquisite works by renowned Czech printmakers from the HOLLAR Association of Czech Graphic Artists in Prague.
The exhibit offered a meditative insight into the soul of Czech artists while showcasing the beauty of craftsmanship and tradition in Central European printmaking.
Eleven artists presented etchings, drawings, drypoints, lithographs and mixed media works with different approaches to spirituality. Some artists were direct, relating to Biblical themes, while others dwelled deep in the realm of the inner self, drawing inspiration from nature.
The HOLLAR Association of Czech Graphic Artists is a non-profit organization located in Prague with a long tradition of fine art printmaking. It was founded in 1971 and is named for 17th century engraver and printmaker Václav Hollar. The Spiritual Dimension in Czech Printmaking was on loan from KADS NY.
