Welcome to Platemark, a podcast about art, ideas, prints, and printmaking

Platemark s3e6 the print ecosystem: Bill Hall, printer, Pace Editions

In s3e6, Platemark host Ann Shafer talks with Bill Hall, master printer (retired) at Pace Prints for nearly thirty years. His earliest years in New York were spent working at the legendary Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop. After his arrival at Pace Prints, his intaglio skills were honed under the tutelage of Aldo Crommelynck, the legendary printer of many of Picasso’s late prints. At Pace, Bill was in charge of the intaglio area bringing those talents to bear on prints by legendary artists like Jim Dine, Helen Frankenthaler, Chuck Close, Robert Mangold, and Tara Donovan. Bill is a soft-spoken, southern gentleman and an artist in his own right. Now retired from Pace, Bill and his wife, Sara, live in Asheville, NC. His work is represented by Momentum Gallery in Asheville.
