Look Again: ACM Collection inspires The Boston Printmakers

The Art Complex Museum (ACM) has a rich, comprehensive print collection. The collection formed by Carl and Edith Weyerhaeuser encompasses seventeenth century Dutch etchings and engravings, including Rembrandt's Descent from the Cross by Torchlight, as well as modern Japanese, American and European nineteenth and twentieth century etchings, engravings, woodcuts, wood engravings, lithographs, and drypoint; and contemporary prints in a variety of techniques purchased by the Boston Printmakers for the museum collection. The Boston Printmakers and Art Complex Museum have collaborated on dozens of projects since the 1970s. The initial relationship was through Ture Bengtz, who was a founder of The Boston Printmakers in 1947 and the first director of the Art Complex Museum.

We are delighted to work exclusively with ACM on this regenerative exhibition showcasing the astute talent, tradition and innovation among our members. For this collaborative exhibition, ACM’s contemporary curator Craig Bloodgood and collections manager Maureen Wengler have selected 42 works for response pieces to be created by members of The Boston Printmakers.
