A Printing Revolution..! Finally..!
don't know about you, but for years I've wanted to print color and dreaded
the thought that the collector, or the museum or gallery curator would
open the box and find the image had faded. Finally, there is truly a
revolution in the printing of color photographs. Epson printers and
inks are leading the way by opening the "archival door,"
allowing artists upresscented control over their work to create prints
with museum quality, clarity and longevity. ...now all it takes is "purely
the image" ... Jean Ferro, Pres. WIPI.
The exhibit, "America in Detail," is by award winning
photographer Stephen Wilkes, sponsored by Epson, printed by R.
Mac Holbert, Nash Editions and curated by Carole Kismaric and
Marvin Heiferman. The production and Installation was handled by Graham
Howe, Curatorial Assistance, Pasadena.
Panel discussion was held at the Patricia Correia Gallery, Bergamot
Station, Santa Monica, CA on March 2, 2001
B. Wride, Associate Curator, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)
tells the audience how LACMA's relationship to collecting color images
has always been a positive one and it is disheartening to open a box
of color images to find that they have faded.
Nash, Nash Editions and co-founder R. Mac Holbert praise the Epson team
for their support and explain how the new paper and inks have surpassed
the "Iris" print. Nash Editions is the leading digital fine
art printmaking studio having devoted over a decade to mastering the
fine art digital printing process.
