Gallery Talk: Master Printer Erika Greenberg-Schneider
Master Printer Erika Greenberg-Schneider, will explore the variety of prints represented in the exhibition of works by women and the process of their creation – the interaction of artist and printer. A master printer is an artist, as well. She will also look at the print ateliers and master printers in America, many of whom she knows personally.
Ms. Greenberg-Schneider is the founder of the influential Bleu Acier Inc. in Tampa, a fine art print publisher, atelier, and showroom. Bleu Acier publishes limited editions of prints by both mid-career and established artists.
As a Master Printer, Ms. Greenberg-Schneider has worked with such noted artists as Jean Dubuffet, Roberto Matta, Pierre Alechinsky, Beverly Pepper, George Baselitz, Chuck Close, and her husband Dominque Labauvie, among many others. She lived in France for 20 years and became a Master Printer in intaglio and lithography for Atelier Franck Bordas and then Director and Master Printer of the Gallery Maeght print studios in Paris and St. Paul, France.
In 2011, she was decorated with the honor of Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French minister of culture. Ms. Greenberg-Schneider was the Master Printer of intaglio at University of South Florida/Graphicstudio and has taught at both USF Tampa and USF St. Petersburg.
