HERBARIUM Part 1 – Printmaking Exhibition


to the printmaking exhibition:



59 artists from countries around the world

HERBARIUM I – PHYTOLOGY I, is the first part of a double printmaking event, of the non-profit company ATHENS PRINTMAKING ART CENTER- PANDOLFINI & SIATERLI C.N.P.P., which is exhibited from the 29th May 2020 at the ETCH INK art space in Athens.

HERBARIUM II – PHYTOLOGY II will follow, from June 24, 2020.

The second part of the event expands the proposal by inviting artists to work on engraving art pieces for the BESTIARIUM- ZOOLOGIO which is planned to be exhibited at the ETCH INK art space, next autumn.


Thinking people are worried about the future of the planet. Nature, the Flora and the Fauna of the Earth are tested daily. Plants and endangered animals are on the rise, and those of us who love nature and its creatures wonder how we can stop this ever-expanding plague. Our decision to address an open call to the countries of the world and propose a double exhibition on PHYTOLOGY-HERBARIUM and ZOOLOGIO-BESTIARIUM in Athens, is, because we are convinced that visual artists around the world are aware and want are present in such a campaign. Our conviction was firmly confirmed by the great response that our proposal receives from many artists from many countries around the world who have applied and have been selected to participate.


The printmaking art – from its birth, language of communication of the image- today through our, on line calls, in all the widths and lengths of the earth, has the opportunity to find new ways of communication. To meet the printmaking art of other people and places that are close to us and others, far away from us. Thus, PHYTOLOGY-HERBARIUM in Athens has the opportunity to prove how similar and how different the artist can speak through engraving and printmaking art on an issue of global concern and threat. The printmaking art pieces of this exhibition sometimes records the flora of the universe with a faithful depiction and sometimes with more artistic freedom. Often the plants in these art works “comment” referring to conditions or describing situations. However, most of them, trace the HERBARIUM of art history by classifying the Flora that surrounds us.
