During the summer of 2015 I prepared and presented a one-man show at the well-known New Grounds Gallery and Print Workshop in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA ( The content draws upon the form and figure in ballet. The show comprises 20 intaglio pieces, all related in some way or another to dancers and performers in ballet. The subject matter includes nudes, portraits, and ballet subjects (both in performance and in backstage moments). This page highlights a few of the prints that are featured in the show, titled "Body and Movement : Etchings by Brian Giza".

Signing Prints

Signing Editions at New Grounds Workshop and Gallery in July, 2015

In addition to producing art, intaglio printmaking requires pencil signatures, numbering, and titles for every print in an edition. With twenty editions in the show, that is a lot of signatures!

"Mane": Subject and print

A particular pleasure (and honor) was seeing some of the individuals in the portraits attending the show - in the case of the subject of "Mane", driving over four hours to get to the show (my many thanks, Amanda!).
