The Printmakers of Cape Cod was founded in 1976 by a group of five artists dedicated to the art of creating original prints. The original group included Marcia Howe of Orleans, who was a driving force among artists on the lower Cape, investigating new media and a variety of printmaking methods. Membership has grown to more than fifty artists.
The purpose of the Printmakers of Cape Cod is to foster and expand knowledge of printmaking in its members as well as in the general public. To that end, the group sponsors workshops, demonstrations and group exhibits which are open to the public. They offer social and educational opportunities for all interested in the production, enjoyment and acquisition of original prints. Current members practice traditional printmaking techniques, such as relief printing, intaglio, lithography and silkscreen. Many also incorporate innovative digital and photographic processes into their original prints and create unique prints, known as monotypes and monoprints.
The theme, “Floating Worlds,” might comprise water, air, emotion or other elements of nature or the imagination. Members will express this theme through a variety of printmaking techniques.
