Wed June 8- Thu July 7
Reception Thursday, June 9th, 6-7:30 PM
SAM Gallery at Seattle Art Museum, 1300 First Avenue, Seattle WA 98101
It’s about time printmaking got some love in this town, and I am happy to say it’s big love! On June 8th Seattle Art Museum opens its much anticipated show “Graphic Masters: Dürer, Rembrandt, Hogarth, Goya, Picasso, R. Crumb. In conjunction, SAM Gallery launches “Prints Today,” featuring six contemporary Seattle printmakers including Troy Gua, Rachel Illingworth, Curt Labitzke, Stephen Rock, Kate Sweeney and myself.
The prints I have made for this exhibit explore new combinations of surface, photography and collage and include elements of my recent paintings. The imagery reflects my experience as a walker in the city, exploring the edge zones of industry and gentrification, the anonymous poetry of the street and the quiet places where nature sustains contemplative refuge in the midst.
I hope to see you at the opening!
