Wood engravings crafted by David M. Moyer, assistant professor of graphic design, have been selected for inclusion in “The Print Effect: Small Works/Big Impact” at Manhattan Graphics Center, located at 250 W. 40th St., between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, in New York’s artistic garment district.

The exhibition dates are Nov. 1-30, with an opening reception set for Saturday, Nov. 3.

Moyer said he feels “very fortunate to have work from a current series accepted in the show.”

The three wood engravings to be featured are titled “RTG 2,” “RTG 3” and “RTG 4.” The small, labor-intensive works, measuring 5 inches by 7 inches, each took about 80 hours to create. Moyer said they will eventually become part of an editioned artist book.

Manhattan Graphics Center is a printmaking workshop striving to provide an accessible environment for the learning and practicing of fine art printmaking.

Moyer received a master of fine arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a bachelor of fine arts from the University of Delaware. His professional organizations include the Society of Wood Engravers, the Wood Engravers’ Network, and Fine Press Book Association.

Moyer has had artwork accepted in international and national juried exhibitions. Recent showings include the Gielniak Graphic Arts Competition at the Muzeum Karkonoskie in Jelenia Góra, Poland; the Society of Wood Engravers’ Annual Exhibition in Oxford, England; the Bradley International Print and Drawing Exhibition at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois; Art of the State 50th Annual Exhibition at the State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg; Art at The X National Juried Exhibition at Xavier University Art Gallery in Cincinnati; the National Small Works Competition and Exhibition at Washington Printmakers Gallery in Washington, D.C.; and Artist Books Cornucopia VIII in Denver. He also has had an artist’s book purchased by Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
