La Manière Noire – International Mezzotint Exhibition

  • Date:
  • Venue: KAC Gallery, 620 Market Street, Kirkland, WA 98033

The title of our international mezzotint exhibition is “La Manière Noire”. Translated as “The Black Way”, this description has been used for four centuries to refer to a process that originated in 1650 as a way to add tonal range to the etchings of the time. Mezzotint matured into a full fledged printmaking method over the next 50 years. Four hundred years later this technique, involving only hand tools, is gaining in popularity again.

This international exhibition includes 30+ mezzotint artists from many different countries. The prints were selected from three separate print exchanges participated in by E. Valentine DeWald II in 2016 and 2017.
