flowersHeather Gaudio Fine Art is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition “Lasting Impressions,” a group show of colorful prints by leading contemporary artists Ross Bleckner, Jim Dine, Caio Fonseca, Betty Merken, Donald Sultan and Andy Warhol.  The exhibition will run from December 2nd, 2016 through February 4th, 2017. All are invited to attend the opening reception to be held in conjunction with the New Canaan Holiday Stroll on December 2nd, 5-7pm.
 
For centuries, artists have engaged in printmaking to enhance and expand their creative output, attracted to a medium that can render unexpected results. Collaborating with master printmakers, artists make impressions designed from their inception to be expressed in a specific technique, such as etching, silkscreen or woodcut. Each print has an element of originality, with no two impressions being identical. The process also allows artists to make their work more accessible to collectors.
 
We are thrilled to feature prime examples of prints by important and established painters who are also naturally gifted printmakers.  The artists in this show have carefully selected specific techniques best suited to their own formal expression. Many of their multiples are highly coveted by collectors and, in some cases, their editions sell out as soon as they are published. Andy Warhol’s compelling high-contrast silkscreened “Flowers,” for instance, quickly became an iconic cultural image when it was first created in the 1970s and is considered a prized image among collectors. Donald Sultan works with the same silkscreen technique using enamel inks and flocking to deconstruct his forms, echoing the industrial materials and variant surfaces seen in his large-scale work. Ross Bleckner translates his “Cell” paintings series onto paper also using a multi-colored silkscreen process.
