2008 Presentation Print of the Print Club of Rochester

Carol Wax works in several media but is best known for her mezzotint engravings. Her education began in music when she received a Bachelor of Music in flute from the Manhattan School of Music in New York City. She then attended Pratt Graphic Center in New York City, where she studied for six years. She has since mastered her craft and is the author of The Mezzotint: History and Technique.

“My images of commonplace objects reflect my personal experience of the ordinary as extraordinary. Most people rarely think about the "stuff" in our lives but, to me, even the most ordinary items seem magical.”
