Opening: Tuesday, December 3 from 6pm to 8pm

A conversation with Felix Angel and Claudia Rousseau, East City Art, will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 11, 6 – 7 pm.

A selection of works by printmaking artists from the City of Medellin, Colombia, South America, curated by Felix Angel (former Hamiltonian Board Member).

This exhibit unites eighteen printmaking artists from the City of Medellin, Colombia, selected as an outcome of last year’s Encuentro de Artistas Grabadores de Medellín (Medellin’s Printmaking Artists Gathering), which took place in November of 2018 with the cooperation of Medellin’s Secretary of Culture, the Bio-Terra Hotel, the Conquistarte Organization, and several printmaking artists who joined together in a Coordinating Committee, as volunteers. Additional costs were underwritten by the Ángel Gómez Foundation. Such an event had never been organized in Medellin. It was an initiative by Washingtonian artist Felix Angel who was inspired by the examples of Artomatic, celebrating its 20th anniversary, and Hamiltonian Artists, celebrating its 10th anniversary, two Washington, DC organizations in which the artist has served as a Board member. Both boasting a common tradition of creating community and opportunities for underrepresented artists. This exhibition celebrates their missions.
