Helen Frederick

Plenary Session

Helen Frederick is known mainly for hand-driven media such as custom-formed paper, artist books, paintings, drawings, and prints that often incorporate the use of language. She also adapts electronic media and sculpture in her installations, and in 2016 will exhibit an interactive work at The Phillips Collection, Washington DC. Frederick's work is included in the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Gallery of Art, Library of Congress, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, DC and many other national and international collections. Major exhibitions of Frederick's work have been held at the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum at Hollins University, VA, Dieu Donne' Gallery, NY, Henie-Onstad Museum, Norway, and in traveling museum exhibitions in Japan, Scandinavia, Greece, The United Staes and South America. Frederick founded Pyramid-Atlantic, a center for contemporary printmaking, hand papermaking, and the art of the book, which she directed for twenty-eight years. Currently she directs printmaking and enjoys working with graduate students at George Mason School of Art, where she serves as director of the department's imprint Navigation Press, in tandem with her interest in curating and coordinating international cultural projects. In 2008 she received the SGC International Printmaker Emeritus Award.
