For the past ten years Susan Weil and José Betancourt have worked closely together to develop ways of printing and presenting a body of artwork based on the Cyanotype, also known as the photographic “Blueprint”. Their collaborative works range from personal and autobiographical to formal constructions.
Please join us for an artist talk with the two artists followed by the opening reception for their exhibition Blueprints.
Susan Weil is an artist from New York City. Her first Cyanotypes date back to her partnership with Robert Rauschenberg in the early 1950s. Her other works include paintings and mixed media sculptures. Susan is currently represented by Sundaram Tagore Gallery in New York.
José Betancourt is Professor of Art and Art History at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. José has been working with alternative photographic processes for 20 years and has given workshops on his techniques.
Susan Weil and José Betancourt's Blueprints is sponsored by Francine Zorn Trachtenberg and Stephen Joel Trachtenberg.
The Ann Loeb Bronfman Gallery is supported by a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
