IPCNY’s 2014 Spring Benefit

IPCNY's 2014 Spring Benefit

Lovely tables all set up inside Cedar Lake in Chelsea on the night of Thursday, May 22nd. The evening honored artist Richard Tuttle, Clifford S. Ackley, the Ruth and Carl J. Shapiro Curator of Prints and Drawings, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and David and Evelyn Lasry of Two Palms Gallery. Despite the rain that evening, the rather noisy interior was filled with artists and those involved with printmaking as collectors, critics, gallerists and other supporters. My table included the executive director of the new printmaking studio Guttenberg Arts. They provide the space and time for practicing visual artists to develop their work and expand their reach through artistic collaboration, and the promotion of their work to curators and collectors throughout the Tri-State area. http://www.guttenbergarts.org/ What a marvelous endeavor! And I was fortunate to meet one of the talented artists they support, printmaker, Kirtsten Flaherty that evening.
