Catharine Clark Gallery and Mullowney Printing

Gallery description

Catharine Clark Gallery and Mullowney Printing began their collaboration with the release of Sandow Birk's "Ten  Leading Causes of Death in America" (2004), a suite of chine-collé, direct gravure etchings. In 2018, Mullowney Printing and Catharine Clark Gallery entered a formal partnership, the latter of which serves as the distributor for projects through the press  with gallery and non-represented artists, including Alison Saar, Masami Teraoka, and Sandow Birk. In 2020, the gallery  launches a new series of print projects through its BOXBLUR initiative, with forthcoming releases by Stephanie Syjuco and Nina  Katchadourian.

After becoming a Master Printer at Crown Point Press in San Francisco, Paul Mullowney founded and managed studios in Ouda,  Japan and on Maui, Hawaii. Catharine Clark studied the history of art at the University of Pennsylvania prior to founding  Catharine Clark Gallery, representing work across medium with an emphasis on print making and education around original multiples.

Copacetic
Alison Saar, 2019

First published in 2019, Alison Saar’s Copacetic is a suite of eight multi-block linocuts on handmade Hamada Kozo, backed with Sekishu Kozo, based on images created by Saar in 2018 for the 125th Street subway station in New York City. Saar expanded her original project, Hear the Lone Whistle Moan, and created Copacetic, a panoramic scene of imagined dancers, singers, musicians, and patrons from the historic 1930s and 40s Harlem Renaissance. Saar notes that her work is inspired by “the many  great African American artists of the Harlem Renaissance that had active printmaking practices, such as Elizabeth Catlett, Hale Woodruff, and Aaron Douglas.”
