Dorothy Markert
Dorothy Markert (American, 1932-) Master Roycroft Artisan, Emeritus, printmaker and instructor primarily known for her silkscreens of stylized flowers in Arts & Crafts pottery, as well as landscapes, winterscapes and architectural prints. Dorothy was born in 1932, and grew up in New Jersey within sight of the skyline of New York City. She studied at the Art Students’ League and the Traphagen School in New York City in the late 1940’s. She has received numerous awards throughout Western New York for printmaking, painting, and fiber arts. Dorothy retired in 2015.

“I am self taught in screen printing and have developed many of my own techniques. As an artist and the mother of four children in the Hamburg, NY schools I was asked to make posters for the PTA. I agreed, if they would buy the materials for screen printing, I would make the posters. I bought a “how to” book and started producing. I could have had a one-man show of PTA posters. I learned a lot. Some of those posters were pretty bad. But I always had a project to do and a deadline to meet. I don't make posters any more.

When I moved to Western New York I had an immediate impression of the strong character of the buildings and of the landscape in this area. When I started using screen printing to express what I saw and felt. I found that breaking down images into areas of flat color simplified and strengthened my work. That led me to experiment–printing on different surfaces and using a variety of stencil making techniques. I printed everything, landscapes, historical architecture, portraits, nature studies, quilt blocks on fabric and traditional quilt patterns on paper as subjects for framed art. I have conducted classes and workshops all over the area, from the famous Chautauqua Institution to the Amherst Museum.

Because of my strong interest in the period, I have designed my recent work to have an “Arts and Crafts” look. My prints are often of stylized flowers in art pottery. In 1997, I was designated a Roycroft “Master Craftsman”. Most of my later work bears the Roycroft Renaissance mark, signifying quality workmanship, technical proficiency and an understanding of the Roycroft traditions of simplicity, purity of form and functional integrity.

I find screen printing a very personal way to create art. The craft, the hands on work is every bit as important and satisfying as the aesthetic vision. There is always something new to discover, whenever I am creating my own work or teaching.

I had decided sometime last year that I would not apply to use the RR Mark (Roycroft Renaissance) when I was up for review this April [2015] (Master Artisans must reapply every 5 years). I haven’t entered the Roycroft Festivals for years and I am not producing the art work that I once did. I am a life member of RALA and will always be interested and in touch with the organization. Back in October my husband of 60+ years died and within the week of his death; I had a stroke. I was hospitalized. I have tried to get back into my printmaking, the stroke left me with some visual damage and I'm still recovering. I will still be listed on the RALA web site as a Master Artisan, emeritus and know of only one other Master Artisan who was given that status.”
