West Coast Print Fair
Kala is excited to participate in the West Coast Print Fair happening online at www.westcoastprintfair.com from January 22 – February 8, 2021.
This virtual print fair substitutes for the three print fairs presented by PrintFairsUSA, LLC normally held on successive weekends in January and February, but canceled this year because of the Covid crisis.
The first of these shows has been the Portland Fine Print Fair, held at the Portland Art Museum. Now in its eighth year, the show owes its success to the vision and work of Mary Weaver Chapin, the Museum’s Curator of Prints, and Sam Davidson, of Davidson Galleries in Seattle. The second show, the Bay Area Fine Print Fair, was inaugurated two years ago as a result of efforts by Dan Lienau and Gala Chamberlain of Santa Rosa’s Annex Galleries to engage the printmaking workshop Kala of Berkeley as a venue for a Print Fair in the San Francisco area. The third show, the longstanding L. A. Fine Print Fair, relocated a few years ago to Pasadena through an initiative taken by Veronica Miller and David Mota of Egenolf Gallery of Burbank.
For the West Coast Print Fair, Ed Pollack and Bernard Derroitte of PrintFairsUSA have recruited 39 Exhibitors from the US, Australia, France, and the Netherlands to present an online fair. The exhibitors are all experienced and highly respected dealers in prints and drawings. Work exhibited will span the range of historical periods, including Old Master, Modern, and Contemporary prints, with strong representation of American, European, and Japanese art on paper. In addition to secondary market dealers, six of our exhibitors are publishers of prints which they produce in collaboration with living artists.
