If you're a printmaker, I hope you've heard of Atelier 17.
The widely acclaimed mid-century Manhattan print studio was known for being an inclusive environment to make and expand the craft of printmaking. My guest today is Christina Weyl, author of a new book "The Women of Atelier 17: Modernist Printmaking in Midcentury New York."
Christina Weyl is an author and art historian and independent scholar and curator. She earned a BA from Georgetown University and my MA and PhD in Art History from Rutgers University. Formerly, she was the director of Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl, a gallery in New York City that represents the print publications of the Los Angels-based artists’ workshop, Gemini G.E.L.
She writes about midcentury American printmaking and women artists.
Get ready for some history. I think you'll get a lot out of this one.
