New Prints by Jake Muirhead
Solo Show at The Old Print Gallery
through January 23, 2012
"Orchard Trees" by Jake Muirhead. Etching and aquatint on German Etch paper, 2011.

New Prints by Jake Muirhead features over twenty etchings, aquatints, and drypoints, and represents Muirhead's exploration of the human figure and invented landscape. His prints exude a rare intensity and liveliness, which can be attributed to his working and reworking of his intaglio plates.

Jake Muirhead earned his MFA in printmaking from GMU, is Associate Printmaker at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center in MD, and teaches drawing at Montgomery College. He is also a founding member of the print group Ateleir Four. Muirhead has exhibited his etchings in numerous national and international print shows, such as the Gualan International Prints Biennale in China, the Pacific Rim International Print Exhibition in New Zealand, and the Taller Xalubina Printmaking Workshop in Spain.
