This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Frank C. Eckmair’s work has been exhibited at major national and international shows from England to Japan, as well as Russia, Korea, Costa Rica and Latvia.

Eckmair’s work is in collections at the Smithsonian, the Metropolitan, the British Museum, Whitney museum of Art, Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Art,  Seoul National Museum, Butler Institute of American Art, the Museo de Arte Costarricense in Costa Rice, Pushkin Museum, Vatican Library, Glenbow Museum in Calgary, and others around the world as well as in more than 200 private, College and University collections.  His work has been featured in fourteen one-man shows across the country.

Buffalo Prints & Paper, created by Eckmair and colleagues at Buffalo State College, has assisted numerous other colleges establish their own hand made paper mills.  Lecturing and demonstrating these techniques, he was called upon by the Organization of American States to organize a paper mill in Costa Rica teaching these skills and theories to professional artists from 14 member nations.

Eckmair has been the recipient of eleven grants and fellowships.  For Gallery Association of N.Y., he organized and curated two exhibits which have traveled the northeast: Options for Printmaking, and Hand Made Paper and Prints.  He coordinated production of paper and printing for the SUNY Plaza Gallery’s major exhibit of New York State artists and poets, The New York Landscape .

Leaving Buffalo State College in 1995 to concentrate on his own work, Eckmair completed the carving and printing of wood engravings for the book, Houses of Memory, published by Caliban Press.  His wood engravings have been shown in exhibits including the British Society of Wood Engravers’ traveling exhibit.  His woodcut Property Line was used to illustrate Robert Frost’s poem Mending Wall, by St. Lawrence Un. Press.  Art Director of Birch Brook Press since 1997, Eckmair’s wood engravings and drawings have been used as illustrations for numerous Birch Brook Press titles.  A one-man exhibit of his work is scheduled for autumn 2004 at the MURAL Gallery of the Frank Cyr Center, Stamford, NY.
