Catharine Clark Gallery and Mullowney Printing began their collaborative relationship with the release of Sandow Birk’s “Ten Leading Causes of Death in America”, a suite of chine-collé, direct gravure etchings published in 2004. In 2011, Mullowney and Clark began co-publishing Birk’s large-scale gravures titled “Imaginary Monuments”, several of which were exhibited at the E/AB in 2018. In 2019, Mullowney and Clark formalized their partnership and co-publish, release, and promote all editions created at Mullowney Printing.
For the booth at the 2019 E/AB Fair, Catharine Clark Gallery and Mullowney Printing will exhibit newly published works by Alison Saar, Josephine Taylor, Sandow Birk, and Masami Teraoka; historic works by Don Ed Hardy, currently exhibiting at the Fine Arts Museums in San Francisco; and collaborative projects by Greg Niemeyer and Roger Antonsen, and Brad Brown and Lytle Shaw. Media represented includes photo and direct gravure, etching, monotype, and woodcut.
