The Bouquet

The inventory at the Annex Galleries is quite large. Monumental, perhaps. The range of styles, genres, techniques, and sheer number of artists — known and unknown — has become a semi-organized chaos that we all love dearly but sometimes can’t navigate. This feeling of vast, uncharted depth certainly carries over to visitors of the gallery and website alike. In an attempt to wrangle in some organization for those wishing to peruse the inventory, we’ve been putting together small exhibitions that sample one subject, technique, or genre at a time. The hope is that this will help broaden perspective and appreciation of the fine art of printmaking and all that it has to offer the art world. We will periodically post these mini-shows on our blog, with links and information on each piece and, when available, backgrounds on the artists themselves. As usual, we look forward to any questions you might have.
