International Print Center of New York

I was invited to be on the selection committee for the summer show at the International Print Center of new York. It was a wonderful experience, and I think we winnowed the field to include some intriguing and fine work. I also think it's worth looking at how the photo and print worlds are getting closer as digital prints gain in acceptance. Come to the opening or come check out the show when you have a chance.
