Rubrication: Selections from the Palmeri Goodstein Print Collection
The Palmeri Goodstein Print Collection contains self-published and contract print works of both historic pioneers of printmaking as well as those of modern and contemporary artists. The scope of the collection is international and ranges through a variety of styles and genres, and is intended to foster a climate of engagement and enjoyment, while at the same time offering opportunities for serious study and examination of fine art prints.
The collection was gathered by artist and printmaker Nancy Palmeri and her husband Ron Goodstein. Containing nearly 1,000 prints with examples from all of the major categories of printmaking, including intaglios, lithographs, serigraphs, and woodcuts. Among these are signed artist proofs, limited editions and series work, as well as one-of-a-kind prints by culturally significant artists. Not only does the collection consist of loose-leaf and stand-alone prints, but also numerous boxed conference collections from events all over the country.
For the principal theme of the exhibition, a selection of works has been gathered by guest curator, Dr. August Jordan Davis, revolving around color, form, and style, but also the potential to create conversation. In particular, the use of red and black as key visual points of interest connects with the historic practice of rubrication, in which red ink was used by artists and printmakers to alert a reader to a particularly important notation or statement.
Visitors are invited to search for works on view that contain this concept and to test their skills to determine which do not. Also included in the exhibit, is the exclusive loan of a rare, antiquated map by the UTA Special Collections that exemplifies the aspects of rubrication.
