NEWBURYPORT — The Newburyport Art Association and its interest group, the North of Boston Print Collaborative, present “North of Boston Print Collaborative,” an exhibit highlighting the works of northern New England printmakers.

“North of Boston Print Collaborative” is on view Wednesday through August 21 at the NAA’s first-floor Sargent and Mini Galleries and its second-floor Hartson Gallery. A public opening ceremony takes place on Saturday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

This exhibition presents the work of engravers: Muriel Angelil, Michele Champion, Patty deGrandpre, Joanne Desmond, Sally Dion, Susan Dosick, Kate Higley, Amy Hourihan, Susan Jaworski-Stranc, Kathie Kelleher, Barbara Nachmias-Kedesdy, Mary Arthur Pollak, Kathleen Reming, Christine Riccardi, Christine Robinson and Mary Carolyn Webber.

In the highly technical world of contemporary print media, fine art printmakers continue to find inspiration in age-old techniques, often in combination with 21st century methods. This exhibition will feature work in a variety of methods, including woodcut and reduction linoleum, monotype and monotype, digital transfer, printmaking, mezzotint, collagraphy and mixed media, according to officials at the NAA.

The North of Boston Print Collaborative was founded in 2004 as the NAA’s featured interest group.

The group’s goals were to exhibit together and publicize the wide range of contemporary printmaking techniques. Activities included critique sessions, workshops and visits to printmaking exhibitions. To learn more about this group and other interest groups presented by the NAA, visit
