The newsletter serves as the official publication of the Achenbach Graphic Arts Council (AGAC). It provides communication about AGAC programs and events, information about the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, and education about works of art on paper. Discussion of exhibitions at the Legion of Honor and de Young, as well as articles about specific works and artists represented in the collections of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF) are a prominent component of the Newsletter’s content.
The Newsletter is sent to all AGAC members, all active FAMSF Trustees, editors of International Print Collectors Society newsletters, selected Fine Arts Museums staff, and some members of the press. The Newsletter is published three times a year as Winter, Spring, and Fall numbers.
Since the Fall 2009 issue, the Newsletter has changed from printed to electronic format. A limited number of photocopied printouts of the Newsletter will continue to be mailed to those AGAC members without Internet or Web access. Please send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org so that you will continue to receive the Newsletter and timely notification of AGAC events.
