Come See My Work at Katzen Center

Written by Terry Svat

The DC, Maryland, and Virginia region is full of boundaries and borders both physical - like the state line- and imagined- political ideology, economic class, gender identity, religious belief. These boundaries delineate spaces, groups, ideas, and more, but they are easily walked over, pushed through, and broken down.

Furthermore, the artists featured in "Crossing Boundaries and Breaking Borders: DMV Printmaking" also question, push, and break down the traditional notions of what printmaking is as a technique, how it can be used, and how printmaking can be defined.

I am honored to be part of the group of 19 artists showing this summer at the Katzen Center.  The works will be open to the public June 15 - August 11, Curated by Mathew McLaughlin.
