From March 12th to April 5th, The Los Angeles Printmaking Society presented the New York Society of Etchers artist prints in the Weingart Gallery, 1600 Campus Road, at Occidental College in Los Angeles.

Directors of The New York Society of Etchers and Los Angeles Printmaking Society have announced exhibitions of their collaborative exchanges of intaglio prints.  The first installment of the enterprise was shown in New York City at the historic National Arts Club on Gramercy Park.  In the first phase of the exchange, the New York Society of Etchers presented the works of some 30 seasoned Californian etchers. 

The Los Angeles Printmaking Society  prints were selected for the New York exhibition by print maker Roxanne Sexauer.  In addition to her accomplishments as an artist, Ms. Sexauer is a teacher of print making techniques at Cal State Long Beach, California. A print of hers will be included in the exhibition.  Representing the LAPS are intaglio artists Jean Burg, Carolyn Farris, YeungHa, John Greco, Dirk Hagner, Diana Jacobs, Anita Klebanoff, Mako Lanselle, Linda Lyke, Laurie Meinke, Pat Merrill, Sheila Newmark, Belle Osipow, Matt Rebholz, Masha Schweitzer, Roxanne Sexauer, Nicole Strasburg, John August Swanson, Nori Ho Uriu, Vinita Voogd, Donna Day Westerman, and Teresa Zepeda.

The New York exhibition opened on November 1, 2004 to coincide with the festivities associated with New York Print Week and closed on Friday, November 26.

The Los Angeles exhibition includes work by New York etchers Kathy Caraccio, Stephen A. Fredericks, Chiam Koppleman, Andy Hoogenboom, Denise Kasof, Martin Levine, Bruce Waldman, Steven Walker, and Tom White, among others.  The Occidental College exhibition also includes the work of LAPS members culled form a national survey of their current membership. There is a Print Symposium, and technical print making demonstrations are planned to accompany the exhibition in Los Angeles.
