Argos Gallery Lecture/Exhibit Series
500 Years of Painter/Printmakers

Argos initiates its Lecture/Exhibit Series on printmaking with a showing of fifty prints by historically important painter/printmakers. Included are Durer, Rembrandt, Hogarth, Daumier, Corot, Kollwitz, Kandinski and many more (see below). This first lecture of our series with Dr. Bell will tour five hundred years of printmaking technique and inspiration, while offering an up-close look at the artwork through the eyes of a major collector. Most prints will be for sale. The Exhibit will be limited to the weekend of December 8th. Friday will feature a preview opening from 4-7pm. Saturday will feature the lecture at two times, 10am and 4pm. These will run an hour each with a discussion afterward, along with refreshments. Space is limited. Attendance is by reserved seating only. Call or e-mail Argos for reservations or for more information. The artwork is from the collection of Dr. Robert Bell, a Santa Fe collector. Dr. Bell has collected prints for over four decades, building one of the largest private print collections in the world. He is a major donor of prints to universities and museums and has lectured widely on the history and technique of printmaking. He has been a patron of Santa Fe printmakers since 1980 and supports the Santa Fe Etching Club. The Club works out of the open studio of Jo Basiste and exhibits at Argos.
