Missy Stockton is an artist and printmaker who uses the printmaking studio at Lee Arts Center to make her work. The “Collective Ink” show is organized by eight participating artists, including Missy, and it will be exhibited at the Popcorn Gallery in Glen Echo, Maryland.
Like many of the artists, they have command of various techniques, and Missy’s portfolio includes etchings, lithos, monoprints, and gel transfers.
“Lives in the Washington, D.C. area after nearly 20 years living in California. Seeing the east coast with a new perspective, most of her print and transfer pieces use forms derived from nature. These stylized compositions surprise with the power of their subtle palettes, delicate forms.
Missy is moving from a career of commercial interior design to devote herself to her ever growing art practice. Her works bring a sense of stillness and offer new ways to see beauty in the ordinary. Visit the Torpedo Factory Art League Gallery to see more of her work.”

The show's visual interest is enhanced by the diverse methods of printmaking represented (including monotype, etching and aquatint, reduction woodcut and photopolymer intaglio) and the subject matter included, but the exhibition remains a unified body because all of the exhibited works will be prints.
Collective Ink incorporates a variety of prints and techniques, allowing each artist to present the best of her work. Each offers a unique take on a theme, ranging from landscape, photo imagery and still life to fantasy and portraiture.”
