Crossing the Line: Innovators of the White-Line Print

Exhibition Website

Dec 8 2016 - Mar 26 2017

Crossing the Line” is the first in a new initiative by the Cape Cod Museum of Art (CCMoA) to present small, focused, educationally-oriented exhibitions that assist visitors in understanding historical, technical, and conceptual ideas in art.  This exhibition, organized by Suzanne Packer, a white-line artist, and first Director of the CCMoA, not only presents examples of white-line prints from their first creation in the early 1900s to the present day, but also offers a step-by-step photographic presentation of the actual technique and the original woodcut blocks that are used for printing.  It also shows traditional woodblock prints, as a comparison, and a “creative table” for visitors to try their hand at a simple print process from stamps.
