An exhibition on how printmaking has evolved from traditional techniques like engraving and woodcut to three-dimensional works printed on the computer 
 
The exhibition opens at Ellarslie, the Trenton City Museum, on Friday, March 8, 2019with a reception from 6 – 8:30 in honor of the participating artists.  
 
From Durer to Digital and 3-D: The Metamorphosis of the Printed Image has been organized and curated by nationally known, local New Jersey artist/curator, Judith K. Brodsky, Distinguished Professor Emerita, Rutgers University, who will give a talk on the exhibition at 7 pm during the reception which is free and open to the public.  
 
Artists in the exhibition include three New Jersey artists: 
·     National Endowment for the Arts recognized Princeton-based photo journalist and photographer, Eileen Hohmuth- Lemonick 
·     Pennington photographer Evan Wolarsksky; 
·     Wendel White, documenter of the traces of African American life and recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, Distinguished Professor at Stockton University. 
 
Three artists reside in Philadelphia:  
·     landscape painter/photographer Diane Burko has collaborated with experimental photographer Anna Tas on holographic prints that are metaphors for climate change; and 
·     Judy Gelles, who has traveled internationally to photograph children and whose images of fourth grade South African children will be included in the exhibition with texts of their own words.
 
Also in the exhibition is Brooklyn-based video/digital artist Anne Spalter represented by what she terms "video prints," and Connecticut resident, Helen Zajkowski with a hilarious installation sculpture based on countless photographs of the Mona Lisa.
 
The culmination in the exhibition is the display of artist-designed jewelry that is created through 3-D printing by the collaborative studio, Nervous System which was founded by two MIT graduates, Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg. Their experimental work is in the collections of many museums including the Museum of Modern Art, New York.  
 
The exhibition is in three sections.  The first section consists of prints by contemporary artists who are using traditional printmaking in new ways. The artworks in this group were created at the Brodsky Center, a printmaking center established by the curator of the exhibition at Rutgers and now located at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA). These include life size figures by Barkley Hendricks, Willie Birch, Maria Gutierrez, and Willie Cole.  Others in this group are self-portraits by feminist artist Kiki Smith; Margo Humphrey, printmaking professor emerita, University of Maryland (a print titled The History of Her Life Written Across Her Face, lithograph with gold leaf); and a portrait of his mother by the revered British black artist, Frank Bowling. 
 
The second section is about photography.  Photography grew out of printmaking in the 19thcentury. The artworks in this section are by Hohmuth-Lemonick, White, and Wolarsky, photographers who are using photography in ways we have come to think of as traditional although their content is very contemporary.
 
The final section consists of the experimental works described above: Diane Burko collaborating with Anna Tas on holographic prints; Anne Spalter with "video prints';" Judy Gelles combining prints and text into sculptural works; Nervous System with 3-D computer generated, artist-designed jewelry; and Helen Zajkowski using the photo copy and its ability to make infinite copies for an installation. 
 
A panel with the artists Burko, Gelles, Hohmuth-Lemonick, and White will be held on Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 2 pm in the museum.
