Annie Silverman is the proprietor of ABRAZOS PRESS, a teaching and professional print studio located at the Miller St. Studio Building in Somerville, Massachusetts. Working primarily with relief and mixed media printmaking techniques, with a specialty in woodblock, Annie has evolved her improvisational practice to create a wide range of printed papers that used and transformed in various ways: by stitching, or waxing, and possibly turned into books, used dimensionally and in installations. She enjoys working collaboratively by being in group printmaking projects, and as a member of LA Printmakers participated in IM/Migration, which was exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2019.
A teacher of long standing, Annie was affiliated with Mass College of Art and Design for over 20 years, and has taught workshops at Zea Mays Printmaking, Art New England, Penland School of Crafts, and Pyramid Atlantic. She has also taught printmaking workshops in Denmark and Ireland at studios associated with Artist Residencies to which she was invited.
Annie’s Artist Books and prints have been collected and shown nationally and internationally, and are in the collections of the Boston Athenaeum , the De Cordova Museum, and the Boston Public Library.
