During September, the Mini Gallery at Lee Arts Center features printmakers who produce their work at the studio located there. Printmaking is an old art form with many variations. The work in this exhibit illustrates the diversity in printmaking.
Mentioned in the order that they are hung, consider these images. Note that photographs of work that is framed and under glass while lit with display lighting distort them with glare. That is why they are photographed on an angle. Still, the best way to view the work is in the gallery.
Participating printmakers include:
Westen (Wes) Muntain -- Wes’ work illustrates classic printmaking employing color ink. In these examples she is exploring textural feeling in the background.
Missy Stockton -- Missy’s work demonstrates strong design elements.
Maureen George -- Maureen’s whimsical fish are a collage technique.
Cherie Redlinger -- Cherie invents interesting characters for her subjects.
Phyllis Rowe -- Phyllis’s work includes examples that have a subtle and classic feel.
Cinda Berry -- Cinda employs photo intaglio technique.
Liz Wolf -- Liz often uses photographs as her artistic elements.
You need to see prints up close, and visiting Lee Arts Center, you can see the artists in the studio with their various presses, and witness the variety of creative approaches.
