The Baltimore Fair for Contemporary Prints and New Editions: March 1 & 2

This aims to be an outstanding fair, with tremendous educational opportunities for all:

From the Baltimore Museum of Art’s event website:

“Peruse an international array of works from 12 major contemporary art dealers, galleries, and presses for this two-day, not-to-miss biennial event. Discover established and emerging artists including—for the first time—a group of talented students from the Maryland Institute College of Art offering contemporary works on paper.

The fair offers new and established collectors the opportunity to peruse prints in an intimate setting, talk personally with dealers, and learn more about contemporary artists and print-making techniques. Visitors will find limited-edition portfolios and single-image prints from such artists as Louise Bourgeois, Robert Motherwell, Dieter Roth, and Richard Serra, among others.

The Baltimore Fair for Contemporary Prints & New Editions is presented by the Print, Drawing & Photograph Society. Proceeds from the Print Fair are used to acquire contemporary works on paper for the BMA’s collection.
