The club published an exhibition catalogue in the new format, including five original etchings by Henry Farrer, John H. Twachtman, James Craig Nicoll, Joseph Lauber, and Charles F.W Mielatz. There were also photogravures of the artists who made the etchings, and an essay, “Etching Technically Considered,” by James D. Smillie.
  • At The World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893, where 350 etchings were exhibited, there was no separate section set aside for the New York Etching Club. Nevertheless, prints were exhibited by several active members, including Robert F. Bloodgood, Carlton T. Chapman, Samuel Colman, Frederick Dielman, R. Swain Gifford, Joseph Lauber, Charles F. W. Mielatz, Mary Nimmo Moran, Robertson K. Mygatt, James Craig Nicoll, Charles A. Platt, Alexander Schilling, Kruseman van Elten, and J. Alden Weir. Past members James S. King, J.A.S. Monks, Stephen Parrish, William Sartain, and Charles A. Vanderhoof also contributed.
  • Henry Russell Wray wrote A Review of Etching in The United States (Philadelphia: R.C. Penfield).
  • The Boston Museum of Fine Art’s Print Department organized the Exhibition of American Etchings and Engravings, which remained open from June through October.

The regular meeting of the New York Etching Club was held at the Studio of Chas F. W. Mielatz, 135 East 15th St.

Messrs H. Farrer, T. W. Wood, Alex Schilling, Joseph Lauber, C. T. Chapman and Chas F. W. Mielatz – were present.
