Will Kaplan is a member of our board who came to MGC originally as one of our scholarship artists.

"I approach printmaking and art with a loose sense of narrative. While my personal life filters into my work, I'm more interested in how others interact with, and read into the art. I find an animating effect when mixing language with vibrant colors, and I hope that these devices provide entry points for viewers to immerse and explore. I love printmaking for its emphasis on multiplicity and transference.

As importantly, I love printmaking for its sense of community. I serve on MGC's board as a way to give back to this organization, while expanding it. I moved to NYC when I won the Manhattan Graphics Center's scholarship program. I felt immediately welcomed by the membership; in a city of 8 million, this sense of belonging was as valuable as the studio itself. I have joined the board in hopes that this organization can continue being a home to as many people who need it. "
