Ink & Grain’s Last Week: Make sure to stop by the Gallery to see Ink & Grain before the show ends. Ink & Grain highlights 20th century printmakers who excelled in woodcuts and wood engravings. One of the most ancient forms of printmaking, the woodcut saw an energized revival during the 20th century. American printmakers experimented heavily with technique, by manipulating the grain of the wooden matrix and crafting new methods of ink and color application. Ink & Grain celebrates this renaissance and the skilled printmakers who worked in the medium, creating in the form of editioned prints, hand-made books, and commercial book illustrations. The show’s last day is this Saturday, November 15th.
