Prints and Portfolios: Modern to Contemporary focuses on particularly delicate groups of images by four working artists: Maya Lin, Richard Tuttle, Anton Würth, and Liz Zanis. The exhibition situates these pieces in contrast to two large woodcuts by George Baselitz. This encounter expands the dialogue within a wide array of different temperaments, techniques, and tones. A third, and significant personality in the exhibition is C.G. Boerner’s gallery space itself, which, as a quiet, living room-like environment, gathers all of the work together like old friends—new though some of the pieces may be.
