Focusing on the Creation, Sharing, and Enjoyment of Handmade Prints

The New Leaf Gallery is a collaboration by Matt Brown & Taryn Fisher concentrating on the sharing of contemporary handmade prints. We manage things from a location in Keene, NH.

Though printmaking uses the same vocabulary of all 2D art (shape, color, pattern, space, and line), making prints often involves more process than other art forms. Makers of handmade prints employ a third matrix (a plate, a screen, a sheet of linoleum, a set of carved woodblocks) to make their imagery. Because prints exist in multiples, there may be more opportunities for the work to "talk back" and play formative roles in its own creation. Printmakers often create a paper trail as witness to the development of their art. Sometimes printmakers utilize assistance from others in the manufacture of their work. Often printmakers enlist the help of an audience, an opportunity facilitated by the fact prints live out their lives in multiples.

Our principal home is a 2nd floor space in Keene on Central Square. We'll soon be relocating this spring to a street-level space - 11 Roxbury Street. As the post-Covid world continues to evolve, our innovative, adaptive strategy will be two-fold: a) continue to build-out and maintain a vibrant online community via our website, and b) create a special "IRL" (in real life) place for people to visit, gather (safely), and share the experience of art.
