It’s February in Maine and the groundhog may have gone back to his den, but printmakers climbed out from all over the state for this invitational exhibit at Greenhut Gallery in Portland. Techniques from etching to woodcut to paper lithography (naming just a few), makes for a dynamic show. It runs through the month, and includes a printmaking talk and demo on February 20.
Above: I am standing next to my collagraph/ monoprint, “Ocean Gyre.” Our oceans appear timelessly pristine, but below the surface and throughout the feeding columns, small particles of man-made plastic are wreaking havoc with this vast ecosystem.
Below: Jeff Woodbury joins me- he had a striking screenprint in the show. Jeff and I are co- Presidents of Peregrine Press, Maine’s oldest cooperative nonprofit press. The Press is planning a 25 anniversary show May— to June—2016. Stay tuned!
