Each year, the Flint Print Club commissions an artist to produce a print to augment both the FIA's collection and the pursuit of personal collecting. The Club is limited to 100 members in good standing at the Family level or above. Flint Print Club dues are $250.00 annually, which provides each participating member with a selected print and related programs.
The FIA is very excited to announce that April Gornik will create the 2014 print. For nearly 40 years, her intuitive relationship to nature has taken a fresh look at the landscape in ways that seem ever threatened, distant, and disappearing.
Known for her large-scale landscape paintings, April has been influential in the New York art scene 1980s. Her work is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, N.Y., the Whitney Museum of American Art, N.Y., the Museum of Modern Art, N.Y., the National Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C., the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., the Cincinnati Museum, the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Orlando Museum of Art, the Flint Institute of Arts, and other major public and private collections. She has shown extensively, in one-person and group shows, in the United States and abroad. In 2003, she was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from Guild Hall Museum, and she was the Neuberger Museum of Art Annual Honoree in 2004.
