A reprise with surprises, this exhibition builds on the brief Autumn 2011 installation by adding new works (some important, some curious) as well as expanded information about printmaking techniques, the artists, and works themselves.

Prints from the original exhibition are again on display, including those by Henry Moore, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Diebenkorn, Christo, Bridget Riley, Helen Loggie, Anne Appleby and Michael Spafford. Kerr Eby’s print, “September 13, 1918 (The Great Black Cloud), which unexpectedly moved so many visitors, returns as well. Three Doris Totten Chase serigraphs are among the new additions. Chase, a Seattle painter and sculptor, was a renowned pioneer in video art, examples of which are collected by the Museum of Modern Art and many other major museums around the world.

A recent gift to the Whatcom Museum, an untitled wood cut by Bellingham artist Tom Sherwood, will be highlighted. Other additions to the exhibition, which includes more than 50 prints, are works by Guy Anderson, Elizabeth Colborne, and Helen Loggie.
