The Bott Collection supports self-published and established artists by providing them with a platform for the representation, exhibition, and sale of their prints.
Fine art intaglio etchings printed by Renée Bott and other master printers are the foundation of the collection. A key part of the program is to introduce new artists and techniques to print collectors and institutions.

"For this year's virtual print fair, I have chosen to exhibit eight prints by artists who work in a wide range of media. Artists who do large scale installations like Tauba Auerbach, Radcliffe Bailey, Margaret Kilgallen, Spencer Finch and Sherrie Levine, have transformed gallery spaces into portals that transport the viewer into their world. The use of light, sound, color and unusual materials connect these five artists.
Laskey and Puryear share a love for meticulous detail and craft. Lasky works directly with thread to construct her images while Puryear shapes and carves his sculptures to give them a quality of timelessness. McCarthy brings her expansive painting style to printmaking. She covers paper, canvas, or the facade of a building with vibrant colors and intersecting hues that invite repeated viewing."
