The New York Society of Etchers Inc. turned to a traditional and time-honored format of "The Salon" for this project initiated by artist and NYSE Director Bruce Waldman with THE GARAGE gallery owner and artist Brian Douglas. The effort was inspired by Honore Daumier's famous lithographic characterizations of 19th century salons.

The objective of this show was the presentation of the latest state-of-the-art prints recently published in New York that encompass a broad range of techniques including etching, aquatint, silkscreen, monoprint, collograph, woodcut, linocut, serigraph, gravure, and solarplate. The majority of the work in the show was hung unframed in a manner that compliments the artists overall composition of plate and paper. Others prints were mounted and matted, with the framed piece an exception. A traditional 'salon feel' and appearance, casual at first glance but strong on content, with the prints concentrated together on the wall was the point.

Participating in the show were many long standing names associated with the New York City print world together with an equal number of today's emerging artist printmakers, as it should have been. Visitors to the exhibition enjoyed seeing the best of New York' self-publishing artists displayed side-by-side with many commercially recognizable names.

Participating in the show were artist-printmakers, Jennifer Ale, Aiko Aoyagi, Anneli Arms, Zophia Boguz, Alexi Brock, Charlie Bynum, Ellen Coleman, RobRoy Chalmers, Ann Chernow, Soo-Jin Chung, Diane Davis, Zev Deans, Stephanie Diaz, Brian Douglas, Robin Fish, David Fox, Stephen A. Fredericks, Deborah Freedman, Lee Gough, Sarah Hauser, Shelley Haven, Martha Hayden, Annie Heckman, Robin Holder, Andy Hoogenboom, H. Max Horbund, Takamune Ishiguro, Ms. Frances Jetter, Lorien Jordan, Denise Kasof, Ronald Katz, Michael Krasowitz, Jessica Lambert, Joan E. Lane, Jessica Lenard, Luanda Lozano, William C. Maxwell, Moira McCaul, Diane Miller, Marjorie Miller, Jacques Moiroud, Bill Murphy, Mike Nagano, Louis Netter, Theo Padavano, Fernando Pomalaza, Ellen Peckham, Alan Petrulis, Gunars Prande, Alice H. Proskauer, Dominick Rapone, Jahee Sargent, Victoria Salzman, Sarah Sears, Robin Sherin, Richard Sloat, Russ Spitkovsky, Evan Summer, T. E. Taylor, David Ter-Avanesyan, Vasile Valeanu, Marjorie Hunt van Dyke, Bruce Waldman, Barbara Wilson, Tammy Wofsey, and Craig Zammiello.

There was a decidedly casual and purposefully social aspect to the exhibition's opening on Saturday night December 10th that included the artists, their guests and an atmosphere of holiday celebration. The NYSE promises that this presentation approach is the first of many seasonal 'salon-style' events to come over the years ahead.
