Crown Point Press announces two concurrent exhibitions: Mary Weatherford and GESTURE: A Group Exhibition. The exhibition presents a series of four new etchings by Los Angeles-based painter Mary Weatherford alongside a group of prints selected from Crown Point’s previously published work.
Mary Weatherford completed the plates for her first project at Crown Point Press in December of 2018. Her approach to making etchings is reminiscent of her painting technique. Using spit bite aquatint, a method of painting with acid onto a copper plate, she created an etched result resembling watercolor. Weatherford chose not to rework her images while in the studio, rather favoring the effects of unlabored mark-making; the final outcome appears effortless.
