History of the Print Club

Founded in 1930, The Print Club of Rochester has a 90 year love affair with the fine art of printmaking and prints. Originally established by 22 print-lovers, the club has continued and grown into the longest continually running print club in the United States. Today the club is committed to the encouragement of traditional and contemporary methods of printmaking.


About the show at MSA

This year’s members exhibition is a little different from years past—for one, it includes a mini retrospective of selected prints from the club’s archive— but it was also curated by Main Street Arts’ executive director and curator, Bradley Butler. “I knew I wanted to work with the print club on this exhibition when they approached me, as marking their 90th year is an important milestone in the club’s history. I also wanted to have some input on the outcome of the exhibition and be a part of it’s formation. The members submitted their work ahead of time and I was able to select specific works to build a strong show.” Each member who entered has at least one piece included in the exhibition.

Juror's Statement



From the Print Club's president…


"When I first joined, the club was offering studio visits, demonstrations and portfolio presentations. The members were welcoming and clearly loved sharing their knowledge. They were incredibly well versed in a wide variety of printmaking methods, many of which I was unfamiliar with and had never tried. The presentations were informative, educational and inspiring. I became eager to sample all these methods. It was also wonderful to be around other artists who shared the same passion for printmaking!"

"I am amazed by the archive and the long list of prominent printmakers who have made these Presentation Prints. This has been done annually since 1934 and the list reads like a 'Who’s Who' of printmaking – Clare Romano, Charles Hewitt, Karen Kunc, Dan Welden, Carol Wax, and Tom Huck just to name a few. There are also local well-known printmakers like James D. Havens, Robert Marx, and Harvey Breverman. Even more amazing is the opportunity to meet these artists as they come to the Rochester area to exhibit and present their work."


— Print Club of Rochester president, Katherine Baca-Bielinis
