Art at Noon: The Fluid Line: Waterscapes by American Painter-Etchers

Americans first devoted etching to the reproduction of paintings, but in the mid-nineteenth century, artists began to recognize the medium’s potential for original expression, and they would come to be called “painter-etchers” for their practice of more expressive draftsmanship. Landscapes, especially water views, supplied a primary source of inspiration for American painter-etchers and the rich selection of prints in Etch and Flow help to tell this story. Dive into this exhibition with curator, Ramey Mize who will demonstrate the range and fluid spontaneity of the etched line.
