Explore the history of nineteenth and twentieth century etchings used in print as a way to share images long before the age of Instagram. The exhibition features J. Andre Smith’s printing press used to create prints from etched metal plates, which include images of Smith’s experiences in WWI and several trips throughout Europe. The exhibit also contains several etchings created by Smith’s contemporaries like Ernest Roth, Milton Avery and Thomas Hart Benton, as well as etchings inspired by the Florida landscape.
