Online Programming

Jacqueline Humphries

The Crown Point Press Viewing Room

The Crown Point Press Viewing Room is an online presentation of prints by a single artist or a group of artists. It may feature a newly released publication or a selection of rare prints from our early history. Jacqueline Humphries is the subject of our third Viewing Room. We present ten prints made in the Crown Point studio in 2016 by the New York-based artist.

Tomma Abts, Mary Heilmann, Jacqueline Humphries, Charline von Heyl and Mary Weatherford

Abstraction: Five Painters

"Abstraction: Five Artists" presents a selection of prints made at Crown Point Press within the last decade by five abstract painters. While these artists work using similar abstract languages, they employ different styles and tools to take the medium of painting to its current place in art. Mary Weatherford’s painting style is rooted in abstract expressionism and color field painting. Jacqueline Humphries is a painter who conceptually connects her work to the cultural and social dialogues of today. Tomma Abts is best known for paintings that often use geometric elements to make them appear woven or built up. Charline von Heyl begins work without sketches or a plan, and generally relies on an intuitive abstract mark-making; her art reflects a distinctive dissonance. Mary Heilmann, as critic Iwona Blazwick has noted, captures “the spirit of an age.” She uses a loose active style and bright colors in her painting. David Pagel, another critic, said, “[She] can make a quickly flicked drip, a loosely brushed smudge or a solitary dollop of color seem like a big event.”

Signs in a Series

March 4, 2021 - April 30, 2021
Crown Point Press announces the release of a new etching, "Sign in a Sandstorm", by Ed Ruscha. It is the second print in a series of images of signs that Ruscha has been working on. The first print in the series is "Lonely Highway", published in 2019. These signs can be seen as hopeful. We are facing challenging times, but another sign ahead encourages us to keep going as we make our way down the road. Ruscha’s new print introduces a group exhibition, "Signs of a Series", featuring eleven artists who have made prints in a serial format at Crown Point. The artists are Tomma Abts, Darren Almond, Tony Cragg, Jacqueline Humphries, Ed Ruscha, Alyson Shotz, Pat Steir, Wayne Thiebaud, Patricia Treib, Richard Tuttle, and Charline von Heyl. Ranging from abstract to figurative, each series of prints encompasses the artist’s unique oeuvre.

Grounded: A Winter Group Show

January 7, 2021 - February 25, 2021
Art can aid us in finding peace and balance in tough times. In this exhibition, we focus on prints that encourage a sense of grounding, which involves being present in the moment and intentional in thoughts and actions. By grounding ourselves, we can move forward into 2021 feeling centered, despite setbacks.
