Wood Engravers Network:
Fourth Triennial Exhibition
March - July 2023
The Fourth Triennial Exhibition is the fourth juried, traveling exhibit sponsored by the Wood Engravers’ Network (WEN) featuring sixty-five (65) contemporary relief engravings representing a truly international group of artists from Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, England, Finland, Ireland, Latvia, Taiwan, Ukraine, and the United States.
A form of relief printing, the technique of wood engraving spread from northern England in the late 1700s outward to the rest of Europe, Russia, Japan, China, Australia, North America, Mexico, South America and beyond. The traditions of wood engraving include book illustration, ex libris (book plates), ephemera (cards, tickets, certificates, bookmarks, etc.), original works of art, broadside (poster) illustrations, and more. The medium’s unique voices of the “here and now” echo these traditions, rise above them and continue to provide meaningful contributions to the broader art world.
