The Wood Engravers’ Network Triennial Exhibition

The Wood Engravers’ Network Triennial Exhibition is the second juried exhibition sponsored by the Wood Engravers’ Network (WEN). Joan Boudreau, Curator of the Graphic Arts Collection at the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of American History, selected sixty engravings by fifty-one artists from the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland and Belgium.

Wood engraving’s intimate scale, minute detail and fine textured grays are emblematic of this graphic medium. American artisans such as Timothy Cole, Lynd Ward, John DePol and Leonard Baskin exemplified the mastery and artistry of the medium in their times. WEN’s traveling exhibit connects the tradition of the medium with a contemporary context, continuing a celebration of the medium today.
