June 6 through August 9, 2009
The Washington Print Club's 20th Biennale entitled Love: Let Me Count the Ways, will consist of approximately 100 prints, drawings, and pastels from member collections. Broadly conceived, the images of love range from the maternal and sexual to the mythological, patriotic/political, and psychological. The earliest prints date from the sixteenth-century and continue right up to present times. While most of the pieces are by Americans, works on paper by Spanish,German, French, Japanese, English and Norwegian artists also are represented.
