Print Center Auction
Proof Positive

It's finally here! The 2018 Print Center Auction will take place Saturday, December 1st. I donated a unique reduction and multiple block woodcut that I printed onto Japanese paper and then assembled into a shadow box. It's one of the only wodcuts I've ever made and not editioned. You can view it here along with many other amazing prints and photographs. Proceeds help to support The Print Center's mission and programs. http://printcenter.org/100/benefit-2018/

Rebecca Gilbert: wonder, at The Print Center
Confluence by Rebecca Gilbert

December 16, 2016 - April 22, 2017

Rebecca Gilbert: wonder brings together new prints by the Philadelphia-based artist. Gilbert’s works come out of her interest in both traditional print processes and her poetic response to the landscape.

This new body of work grows out of an artist residency Gilbert had in 2015 at OCHO, Questa, NM. During the residency she explored the countryside around Questa guided by a treasure map created in the form of a poem. It was created by a retired art collector living in Santa Fe named Forrest Fenn, who has hidden more than one million dollars in gold somewhere in the rugged nearby countryside. Gilbert’s hunt for Fenn’s treasure became an opportunity to take notes and make sketches of the beautiful landscape with its interesting rock formations and hidden petroglyphs, as well as of objects she found during her hikes. Those sketches were the starting point for the engravings and woodcuts in this exhibition. While Gilbert’s treasure hunting activities are recent, her work has focused on gold in the past.

Hunt, Gather, Build: In the Studio with Rebecca Gilbert

This is a short film that was shot, created, and edited by Joseph Rose. The film was shot in my studio in South Philadelphia and at The Print Center in Philadelphia. In the film I talk about themes explored within my recent body of work and Joseph documents the process of me making the work.

Wood Engravers' Network Blog

I'd like to thank the Wood Engravers' Network for helping to get the word out about my exhibition of woodcuts and wood engravings that is currently on view at The Print Center. They pulled from the lovely gallery notes written by The Print Center's Jensen Bryan Curator, John Caperton to give a good synopsis of what you can expect when you go to see the show. They also included lots of detail images of my work to entice you to come out and see the show. The Print Center is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10:00 - 6:00 p.m. and they'll be staying open late on March 23rd when I'll be giving a talk at 6:00 p.m. Here's a link to the blog!
