Join us in celebrating Imprint 2023, WEM’s annual high school printmaking competition! During the program, we’ll explore a selection of Esherick woodcuts that highlight his approach to storytelling, whether illustrating the words of authors like Walt Whitman or telling a story of his own life on Valley Forge Mountain. Alongside Esherick’s prints, we’ll take a look at a few of our Imprint prizewinners for the unique ways these students took on the theme of storytelling in their own works!
Over the course of Esherick’s life, woodcut printmaking proved a critical medium in his artistic development. Through his explorations in printmaking, Esherick transitioned from a young painter to an internationally-recognized artist and furniture designer. Now in its 15th year, the Imprint program encourages new generations of young artists to share their voices and vision in this dynamic medium.
