Here is a blurb from the press release as well as a list of the artists ~

"The assembled group of Boston-area women printmakers provide a broad range of work including abstracts, portraits, cityscapes, socio-political, domestic interiors and the autobiographical in printmaking techniques ranging from mono-prints, etchings, fabric printing, serigraphs, woodcuts, holographs, and digitally assisted processes. The work is as varied as the interests and styles expressed by this intergenerational group of local women printmakers. The participating artists include the seasoned artist veterans Esther Garcia Eder, Linda Dunn, and Carolyn Muskat, as well, as the soon-to-graduate Umass art Department emerging artist Angie Melchin and recent Leslie University graduate Fiona Logusch and printmaking newcomer Blair Boudreau. Female imagery is abundant as seen in the work of Jennifer Hughes, Virginia Fitzgerald, Jackie Miller, Nancy Popper, Christiane Corcelle-Lippeveld, and Randy Garber. The lush and vibrant prints by Rani Sarin, the black and white mono prints by Catherine Carter, and the print-on-fabric quilted squares by Jeanne Williamson supply the exhibit with an array of abstract imagery. The work of these 29 local women artists in more than fifty pieces are on view as part of the BHCC International Women’s Month events and celebrate the diversity of art making within this well networked printmaking community."
