Outside Looking In: P.3

Benjamin Levy picks favorites at The International Fine Print Dealers Association Print Fair Print Fair in New York

The first week in November is a time that I look forward to every fall. IFPDA Print Week with its multiple fairs and countless exhibitions, openings, lectures and events is an exciting time for a print enthusiast like myself. It is exhausting, after five days tromping around my feet sore, eyes stinging, and voice hoarse, but oh so worth it!

The IFPDA Print Fair, with its 90 exhibitors, showcases the range of artistic expression in print form from old masters to 19th and 20th century, modern and contemporary. As my colleague, Ann Shafer, and I plan for the Baltimore Contemporary Print Fair in March of 2015, I focused my attention on the contemporary workshops and galleries for this recap. Here is a run down of just a few of the great things that were on view in no particular order. Thanks to the IFPDA and all the exhibitors for another great fair.
