Etching. Drypoint and Aquatint
Sidney Hurwitz says he visited a row of disused cranes at the old Port of Antwerp, Belgium, in 2007 while on his way to the Frans Masereel Print Center. The Worcester, Ma., native then produced an etching, drypoint and aquatint on Rives BFK with Graphic Chemical Bone Black ink pulled by Robert Townsend of Georgetown, Ma. A graduate of Brandeis, Hurwitz holds an MFA from Boston University and has earned a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Fellowship, a Fulbright Fellowship and a Massachusetts Artist Fellowship. He has had solo exhibitions at the University of New Hampshire Art Museum, Boston University, Old Print Shop, University of Utah, Mary Ryan Gallery, Martin Summers Gallery and the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, Turkey. His works are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Victoria and Albert Museum, Boston Public Library, Library of Congress, Krakow (Poland) National Museum, Honolulu Art Museum, Federal Reserve Bank in Boston, Worcester Art Museum, Philadelphia Free Museum and the Japan International Bank.
