Dynamic Duos: Printmakers as Partners

August 7, 2018–April 20, 2019 D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts

Exhibit Extended!

Like partnerships in life, partnerships in art can be intrepid, productive, devoted, or dramatic. This exhibition brings together pairs of prints by artists who were friends, couples, or business partners. From the woodblock prints of husband and wife duo William Zorach and Marguerite Thompson Zorach to the mass-produced lithographs of business partners Nathaniel Currier and James Merritt Ives, the prints in this exhibit speak to the collaborative, creative lives of their makers.

Mark Feeney of the Boston Globe wrote after visiting this exhibition  (12.27.18): “[This exhibit] demonstrates how cannily a museum can put to use its permanent collection.”
