Opening Apr 6 First Impressions: Women Printmakers of Washington is the first overview of women printmakers of Washington State who were active in the early to 20th century. Seattle became a center for the creation of original prints with the establishment of the Northwest Printmakers Society in 1929. Important figures, such as Dorothy Dolph Jensen, the first woman to produce etchings and intaglio prints in Seattle after importing an etching press from Paris in the 1920s, are featured. Other printmakers included in the exhibition: Elizabeth Colborne, Z. Vanessa Helder, Virna Haffer, Helen Loggie and more. Cascadia Art Museum is proud to present another ground-breaking exhibition that has never been produced in the Northwest.
