Impressions from Rembrandt is a collection of prints produced by 14 students in the Introduction to Print Media course, taught by Professor Gregory Page and assisted by MPF Printmaking Technician Julianne Hunter and teaching assistant Libby Rosa at Cornell University in the Academic Year 2017-2018.  Students created a portfolio of 18 limited edition prints utilizing various techniques taught in class including lithography, woodcut relief and screen printing. Each print measures 11”x15” and is hand-printed on various archival grade fine art papers.

Rembrandt, a Dutch master of the 17th Century, gave rise to important ways of image making. His subject matter and style influenced generations of artists to come. The students responded to the plethora of subjects in Rembrandt’s etchings, ranging from portraits to genre scenes and landscapes to narratives. The students visited The Johnson Museum twice to view the exhibition and to study several Rembrandt prints up-close. The work responds to Lines of Inquiry: Learning From Rembrandt’s Etchings, an exhibition co-curated by Andrew C. Weislogel and Andaleeb Badiee Banta at The Johnson Museum of Art.

Special thanks to Cathy Rosa Klimaszewski, Andrew C. Weislogel, and Carolyn Benedict Fraser for their support and collaboration.

6/1 - 6/30

Illustrator/printmaker Paul Van Atta will exhibit a new body of work that started as an experiment with found materials, and developed into a means of engaging with the public. This body of work shares the humor and animosity of a complex society and started shortly after Paul Van Atta graduated from SUNY New Paltz with an MFA in printmaking. This work has now turned into a dialogue between the creative and the world changing and swaying on capital.
