Free Museum Days: The Print Center

The Print Center, a nonprofit gallery located in Philadelphia’s historic Rittenhouse Square neighborhood, encourages the growth and understanding of photography and printmaking as vital contemporary arts through exhibitions, publications and educational programs. The Print Center is an international voice in print; our global outlook coincides with a strong sense of local purpose. Recognized as a locally significant and internationally respected gallery, an art education provider and an artists’ advocate, The Print Center is known for supporting emerging and established artists; developing unusual and intriguing programs that attract a diverse audience; and making art accessible to all members of the community.

The Print Center has three exhibitions on view: “Nancy Hellebrand: EVERYBODYBEAUTIFUL,” “Stephanie Santana: Ways of Knowing” and “Martie Zelt: Land Strider.”

These exhibitions are showcase a combination of printmaking and photographic processes and are presented as part of (re)FOCUS, a citywide project celebrating and reflecting on 50 years of feminism in the arts.

Nancy Hellebrand’s photographs of aging women’s bodies lay bare the physical realities of the female form that is often forsaken for youthful allure. Printed in miniature and rendered in deep, rich tones, her images grant these women a dignified beauty. Stephanie Santana explores interior worlds, mythologies, navigational tools and resistance strategies within the Black diaspora experience. Working across fiber arts and printmaking, her intuitive practice spans time and geography with the intent of unearthing useful information. Martie Zelt (1930-2023) took an expansive approach to traditional lithography throughout her career. She manipulated paper and introduced textiles to the process, supplementing her prints with media such as thread and Xerox.
