Line & Shadow. June 10-July 8. Opening Reception June 10, from 5-8pm at the Gallery. The exhibit features a selected collection of prints by early 20th century and contemporary artists, all skilled in the use of line and the depiction of light. for these 16 artists, their etched and engraved lines define the architectural parameters of a room, a face, a body, or a landscape, which in turn create a supporting structure for light. By illuminating their compositions, the artists achieve the illusion of three-dimensionality and bestow upon their prints depth, senses of time, and emotion.
Director’s Cut: July 15- August 12. Opening reception on Friday, July 12, from 5-8pm at the Gallery. An exploration and celebration of the woodcut medium, the oldest known printmaking technique. Handpicked by our gallery director, Laura Graham, and ranging from 15th century to contemporary prints, the selection will be a showcase of the evolution and creative innovation of the woodcut over time.

Fall Series ( still in the works)
Emily Trueblood. September 16- November 5. Opening Reception on Friday, September 16, from 5-8pm at the Gallery. A very talented artist working in linocuts, exploring the graphic quality of medium. About linocuts, Trueblood states, ” Woodcuts and linocuts enable me to work in a simplified, bold way. Once cut, the blocks are almost impossible to change. I like working like this way because it forces me to focus on what I most want to express.”
