Sally Frank is a printmaker whose images are drawn from observations of the natural world and a deep sense of connection with the earth. Her work incorporates a variety of printmaking techniques, from traditional etchings, woodcuts and monotypes to newer methods, such as photopolymer intaglio. She began making prints while attending Simon’s Rock College in Great Barrington, MA, and later earned a Master’s degree in printmaking from C.W. Post College in New York. Over the last 40 years, her work has been exhibited in galleries across New York, Connecticut, Maryland, and New Mexico.
In June 2023, David Max Horowitz, Assistant Curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in NYC, selected one of Frank’s prints for inclusion in the Greenwich Art Society’s 106th Annual Juried Exhibit. In 2019, her large-scale woodcut “Landscape Past” was chosen by Jennifer Farrell, Associate Curator of Drawings and Prints at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, to be part of “Paper 2019,” an exhibition at Silvermine Galleries in New Canaan, CT.
In 2017, Frank’s entry into the Center for Contemporary Printmaking’s 11th Biennial International Miniature Print Competition received the McClain Purchase Award. The show was curated by Freyda Spira, who is the Associate Curator of Drawings and Prints at the Metropolitan Museum. In December 2015, MOMA curator Eva Respini selected her monotype titled “Rush Hour” for inclusion in “Art of the Northeast,” a regional exhibition at the Katonah Museum in Katonah, NY.
In 2009, Frank was awarded an artist residency at the Weir Farm Arts Center in Wilton, Connecticut. Memorial Sloan Kettering has acquired four large-scale woodcuts for the MSK Hospital location in Bergen, New Jersey.
Frank served on the Board of Directors for the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT, for 6 years. She is a current member of The Boston Printmakers, Zea Mays Printmaking, the Center for Contemporary Printmaking and the Monotype Guild of New England.
