presented by Paige Curtis
Rye Art Study's April meeting will be the forum for learning about John Taylor Arms, arguably America’s most recognized etcher, lecturer and enthusiastic promoter of printmaking in the 20th century. During his career, JTA created more than 450 etchings and aquatints, wrote multiple books and articles, traveled extensively, promoted etching and printmaking through demonstrations and lectures and mentored young etchers.
You will learn about John Taylor Arms from his great granddaughter Paige Curtis who will be making the presentation. Paige graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University with a degree in Art History. In addition to writing her thesis on John Taylor Arms, Paige researched, designed and presented The Gothic Image: An Exhibition of Prints by John Taylor Arms, which was shown in the Milberg Gallery of the Princeton University Library in 1988. Please enjoy Paige's article Lace in Stone: The Artistry of Etcher John Taylor Arms.
We look forward to seeing you on April 17th at 9:30 for refreshments. The meeting will start promptly at 10:00 AM.
