Silvermine Arts Center features Rowayton Artist Gabor Peterdi "Selections from the Gabor Peterdi International Print Collection"

In 2012, Silvermine Galleries officially named its print collection “The Gabor Peterdi International Print Collection”, in honor of Silvermine's print collection founder, Gabor Peterdi, the late Hungarian-American painter and print maker who was a long-time Rowayton resident.   Having started the printmaking department at Yale University, Peterdi established the National Print Biennial competition at Silvermine in 1956. The Arts Center established the foundation of a permanent print collection through the acquisition of juror purchase awards. In subsequent years, additional prints were added to the collection via donations and bequests. This year's exhibition will feature recent acquisitions of prints by Fritz Brosius, Alexander Calder, James Flora, Charles Hinman, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and a print attributed to Salvador Dali.

View the collection at the Silvermine Arts Center through February 16th
Wednesday-Saturday: 12pm-5pm and Sundays 1pm-5pm
