The Nature of Things marks the early years of the studio’s development and represents the work of fifteen artists affiliated with Zea Mays Printmaking at its inception.
The portfolio is limited in edition to twenty-five. Each print is hand pulled by the artist, signed and numbered and measures 11″ x 15″. The prints are individually housed in folios imprinted with the artist’s name.
Two essays accompany the prints. Aprile Gallant, Associate Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs, Smith College Museum of Art comments on the theme of The Nature of Things. Liz Chalfin, Founding Director, Zea Mays Printmaking writes about the studio and the portfolio’s significance at this point in its history.
The Nature of Things lives in the permanent collections of The Smith College Museum of Art, Northampton, MA, The DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Garden, Lincoln, MA, The Boston Public Library, Boston, MA, The Portland Museum of Art, Portland, ME.
