About the artists:
Joanne Augustine is a highly honored watercolorist whose naturalistic floral paintings have enchanted viewers for both their technique and atmospheric qualities.

Thomas George: Internationally recognized artist Thomas George has created a series of extraordinarily beautiful watercolors and pastels of anemones, a favorite subject for Matisse, Emil Nolde, and Redon as well.

Margaret K. Johnson: Two series of collagraph prints are presented: "The Absurd Dream Series" which creates a delicious visual world in each print that transcends the gastronomic aspect of the subject matter (dessert, apple, watermelon), and a "Small Print Series" which expresses the collagraph medium through impressions of old buildings, walls and inscriptions.

Gar Watermans's meticulously executed sculpture is based on his exploration of organic form. His work in marble, bronze and wood examines the intricate dynamic of texture, shape and color that exists in nature.

MARY LOU BOCK, CURATOR

WHAT:
"SURFING THE INTERNATIONAL PRINT WORLD: AN EXHIBIT OF ORIGINAL PRINTS CREATED BY NATIONALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN ARTISTS USING TRADITIONAL AND NEW MEDIA TECHNIQUES" Featured artists: George Cramer, Susumu Endo, Margaret Johnson, Jörg Schmeisser, Roman Verostko, and Rolf Weijburg.

Opening: Saturday, May 13, 1995, 4:00-6:00 PM
HOURS: Tuesday - Saturday 11:00 - 5:00 & by appointment.

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:
For each of these artists the medium is an essential part of the inspiration for their art, integral to the development of idea, imagery, and composition. Three of these artists use the computer and three use the etching press as tools for implementing what they do with lines, colors, textures, and spaces. All revere esthetic integrity. Each has invented distinctively personal approaches to the art form of the print.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

GEORGE CRAMER employs the electronic art medium like other artists use a palette and brush.

SUSUMU ENDO a photographer and printmaker, creates imaginative photographic images of scenes in nature or space.

MARGARET JOHNSON a master of printmaking techniques, uses for her tools a plate for a matrix, brayers, and an etching press.

Jörg SCHMEISSER customarily carries his etching equipment including heavy metal plates on his travels to faraway lands in search of new material for his prints.

ROMAN VEROSTKO His software is an extension of his own visual ideas, by which he creates works glowing with mystery and iconic qualities remeniscent of medieval manuscripts.

ROLF WEIJBURG, cartographer, printmaker and world traveler, chooses the etching processes for visualizing his artistic messages.

This exhibition will travel to Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. following the opening exhibit at The Williams Gallery, Princeton, May 13, - June 3. The dates at Merrill Lynch will be Monday, June 12 through Saturday, July 29. It will be open to the public.
