Carved: Woodcut and Woodblock Prints from the Collection
January 14 – April 30, 2017
Both woodcut and woodblock prints have been popular methods of printing for centuries. The history of woodblock prints dates back to ancient Han Dynasty China and European artists have been creating woodcuts since the fifteenth century. Both mediums lend themselves to a dizzying amount of variety, from the minutely detailed Old Master prints of Albrecht Durer to brilliantly-colored abstract works of contemporary artists. Carved demonstrates the great diversity in woodcut and woodblock printing and pays homage to the long tradition of the medium, drawing from the Museum’s extensive collection of works on paper.
This exhibition is made possible by the Diamond V Corporate Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation. Exhibition season support has been provided by the Hotel-Motel Tax Fund, the Program Grant Fund of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts, members of the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, and contributors to the Museum's Annual Fund.
