MGC hosts 14-24 exhibitions per year – free and open to the public – in its Main Gallery and its Project Gallery spaces, many of which are enhanced by guest talks and receptions. We regret that we are unable to post full details for all recent exhibitions here. Rather, we invite you to peruse selected highlights from recent years. We also encourage you to visit our Member Highlights and Online Gallery pages, which will familiarize you with the member artists who work at and exhibit in solo exhibitions at MGC.

In addition to solo exhibitions, MGC also hosts group shows centered around a theme, such as “La Huella Magistral: Homage to Master Printmakers” (January 10 – February 2, 2020), a portfolio of portraits by 19 Contemporary Latino master printers in honor of those who came before them. The portfolio was published by Consejo Gráfico Nacional, which was established in 2000 to promote Latino printmakers and their legacies. We also recently featured “The Climate Crisis: Endangered Earth” (September 24 – October 27, 2019), which included work by approximately 85 artists in a variety of techniques and subjects, including the sanctity of the endangered natural world and potential negative outcomes for the future. 

Our juried exhibitions program widens MGC’s purview to national and international levels. The biennial “New York International Miniature Print Exhibition,” which began in 2015, has energized the minds of viewers and participants over four iterations to date. The 2019 exhibition included 210 works by 119 artists from 21 countries around the world. Jurors have included Sarah Suzuki (2015), Curator of Drawings and Prints at the Museum of Modern Art; David Kiehl (2016), Curator of Prints and Special Collections at the Whitney Museum of American Art (now retired); Jennifer Farrell, Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Prints, Illustrated Books, and Artists' Books at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2017); and Sarah Kirk Hanley (2019), who was an independent critic and expert at the time but is now MGC’s Executive Director. “The Print Effect: Small Works, Big Impact” (November 1 – 30, 2018), which was juried by the distinguished artist Lothar Osterburg, showcased over 200 works by 122 artists from 32 states in a wide array of techniques and subjects, allowing viewers to appreciate varied approaches to contemporary printmaking by artists from all over the United States.
