The New York Society of Etchers, Inc., in conjunction with Instituto Cultural Peruano Norte Americano of Lima, Peru, have organized an international exchange of artist prints to be presented in two separate phases this fall. This exciting event marks the fifth anniversary of the NYSE’s inaugural exhibition at the National Arts Club in 2000.

The New York City based portion of the exchange, “25 Years of Contemporary Peruvian Prints”, will be presented from November 1 thru November 15, 2005 at the National Arts Club in New York City.  New York based artist printmaker Jennifer Ale initiated the exchange between the NYSE and IPCNA Director Fernando Torres.  This event is planned to take full advantage of the crowds visiting NYC during Fine Art Print Week hosted by The International Fine Art Print Dealers Association.

Many of Peru’s most historically important contemporary printmakers will be represented, and their prints exhibited in the United States for the first time in this historic show.  Among the artists included are Eduardo Moll, Julio Camino Sánchez, Claudio Juarez Castilla, Alberto Agapito, Miguel Angel Mendoza, José Huerto Wong, Jorge Valdivia, Rosario Young, Miguel Espinoza, Giovanna Weberhofer, Jesús Rojas, Moisés Quintana, Martín Moratillo, Rosa Girón, Marco Albuquerque, Rocia Rendón Castañeda,  Julio Garay Terrazas,  and Edison Lisarazo Bellota.

The Lima-based phase of the exhibition will take place in Peru this October with the presentation of prints by New York artists at the prestigious   Instituto Cultural Peruano Norte Americano.  The work of the New York artists will be presented in conjunction with Peru’s First International Print Biennial.  Representing the New York Society of Etchers in the exhibition are Linda Adato, Michael Arike, Jennifer Ale, Aiko Aoyagi, Anneli Arms, Kristine T. Bouyoucos, Elena Brady, James Ebersole, Eduardo Fausti, Lee Gough, James Haggerty, Sarah Hauser, Martha Hayden, Rosalee O. Isaly, Lorien Jordan, Frederick Mershimer, Diane Miller, Jacques Moiroud, Joan O’Connor, Joseph Ramos, Victoria Salzman, Richard Sloat, Dino Tasovaz, David Ter-Avanesyan, Barbara Wilson,  Bernard Zalon plus exhibition jurors artist Ann Chernow and master printer Jim Reed of Milestone Press. 

The exhibition will open to the public in Lima Peru from October 5th through October 30th 2005 in the galleries of the ICPNA during Peru’s First International Print Biennial.

Instituto Cultural Peruano NorteAmericano, also known as the Peruvian American Cultural Institute, was formed in 1938 by a distinguished group of Peruvian intellectuals and officials of the Embassy of the United States whose objective was the integration of both country’s artistic and cultural activities.  The ICPNA’s tradition of promoting printmaking activities dates back to 1965 with annual exhibitions held uninterrupted since.  The institute’s headquarters are located in the Miraflores district of Lima where they maintain a modern facility incorporating five state-of-the-art exhibition galleries, lecture halls and a full scale theatre for stage and concert performances.
