Edna Boies Hopkins Color Woodblock Prints: Stong in Character, Colorful in Expression

December 2, 2007

The Columbus Museum of Art, in partnership with the Springfield Museum of Art, has organized a touring exhibition of approximately 50 woodblocks created by Edna Boies Hopkins. Inspired by nature and known for her boldly colored woodblocks, this is the first major exhibition of this important American artist's work. These woodblocks have become increasingly rare and are widely sought after by museums and private collectors. The Two Red Roses Foundation was pleased to loan this touring exhibition two significant pieces of Hopkin's work from its own collection entitled "Asters and Dahlia", and "Primroses".

Several articles about this exhibition have been written in the local press. Below is a list of these articles:
