Since the 1970s, Lee Newman has created prints of everyday life, nature and architecture. Most of his work is made using drypoint, a method that involves using a sharp pointed scribe to incise an image onto a plate.
As his retrospective show "Glimpse" goes on display at Washington Printmakers Gallery (WPG), Newman discusses what draws him to the art form and the importance of WPG's presence in Montgomery County.
See Lee Newman's "Glimpse" through Nov. 28 at Washington Printmaker's Gallery, 8230 Georgia Ave., Silver Spring. Call 301-273-3660 or visit http://washingtonprintmakers.com.
