On-Line Retrospective (Work in Progress)

Changes to this section of the website will be made frequently.

In 2002 a retrospective exhibition (Read Exhibition Prospectus) of thirty years of prints was organized by print curators Jerry Cohn (Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts), Lyle Williams (McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, Texas) and David Becker (Portland, Maine). Plans for the exhibit stalled and in 2004, the project was cancelled.

Prints selected for the retrospective exhibition are being added to DocArt.com in chronological order, along with supporting materials related to the prints. The prints have been selected from the larger body of print work organized in the Print Catalog.

This page provides an on-line print retrospective for prints by Eric Avery. Unless otherwise noted, all prints are published by the artist. All images Copyright © Eric Avery. All rights reserved.
