Innovations by women printmakers contributed significantly to all phases of the development of color printmaking techniques in America during the first half of the twentieth century. From Mary Cassatt’s early experiments in color intaglio to June Wayne’s lasting legacy in lithography, we see that women fueled much of the development in this field. This exhibition of sixty prints, in cooperation with Loras College, surveyed these achievements through the works of more than fifty American women artists over a period of seventy years from the collection of Belverd and Marian Needles.
