Ricki - I went through my May 6 digest and can't find your original post,
just noticed the replies.

If I knew what state you are in, I might be able to help more.

May I suggest (and I second the Karen Kunc idea)
Jean Gumpper, now in the Denver area. Very beautiful meaningful work,
usually involving nature and weather - color woodcuts
Carol Summers, definitely, and his work won't be hard to find pictures of. -
color woodcuts
Louisa Chase (more active in the 80's?) - color woodcuts
Warrington Colescott - satirical etchings
Raymond Gloeckler - woodcuts - some satirical, some Catholic images, some
satirical Catholic images
Mark Sisson - social commentary - astonishingly labor intensive - boys
especially love his work for some reason.

I have a marked preference for artist-printmakers who make their own prints,
rather than painters who have their work made by production studios like
Tyler and Pace and Universal Limited and Crown Point, etc. then get
exhibited as printmakers. I don't have the energy right now to deal with
that becoming a thread or anything, it's just a personal prejudice as a
printmaker who recently exhibited with a bunch of corporate-produced work.

Here is a link for Oriel Cambria, a site that includes some very beautiful
printmaking from Wales, Sandra Holroyd in particular - great aquatint
control.

here is a great site of printmaking links:
http://www.mtsu.edu/~art/printmaking/print_links.html

Clarke college in Iowa has a site that includes a print portfolio of
University of Wisconsin printmaking alumni (I wasn't invited) that has some
nice work. There is a link from here:
http://keller.clarke.edu/~lkames/art_homepage/artlinks.html

The womens studio workshop in NY also has a site with some good current
images, I think it is WSW.org They also have (or had, at least, probably
still do) a link to an excellent exhibit of Jewish women book artists. If
you can't find that, search for "Diane Fine". She has a book there, and the
link will come up in your search engine.

good luck
