Mary Teichman received a BFA from the Cooper Union School of Art in New York City in 1976. There she discovered multi-plate color separation etching employing yellow, red, blue and black copper plates that overlap to create a broad spectrum of color, including secondary and earth colors, as well as line, tonal and textural effects.
Mary’s work has been included in more than 250 national and international invitational and juried exhibitions, including The National Original Print Exhibition of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers in London; New England on Paper: Contemporary Art in the Boston Athenaeum’s Print and Photographs Collection; the Rene Carcan International Prize for Printmaking Exhibit in Brussels (twice); the Brooklyn Museum’s 22nd National Print Exhibition; and the 163rd Exhibition at the National Academy of Design in New York.
Her etchings are in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, The Boston Athenaeum, The New York Public Library, The Museum of the City of New York, and the University City Art Museum of the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Art, among others. She received the 2019 Society of American Graphic Artists award for outstanding commitment and contributions to the fine art printmaking.
