“Fresh, human, and personal”— this is how Allan Edmunds, founder of the Brandywine Workshop and Archives, has described the prints produced at the Philadelphia-based arts organization. A non-profit celebrating diversity, experimentation, and accessibility since 1972, Brandywine has become an internationally recognized printmaking center whose residencies have fostered the creative talents of notable artists, such as Sam Gilliam, Romare Bearden, and Faith Ringgold, among many others. 'Contemporary Spotlight: New Acquisitions from the Brandywine Workshop' is an opportunity to celebrate Telfair Museums’ recently acquired lithographs by Black artmakers, a decisive moment in the institution’s long history.
