MARCH 3 - MAY 13, 2012

From anglers on Rembrandt's riverbanks to William Wegman's scaly creatures, fish and fishing have inspired artists for centuries. This exhibition of works from a private collection explores the subject in 60 etchings and engravings from the 16th century to the present. Angling lore, scientific study, and sometimes acid humor are brought together by a variety of printmakers. Through these images, the exhibition provides a fascinating history of etching and engraving. Art Service Group
