Impressions: The Art of the Print
a juried exhibit
On display November 14, 2015 – January 3, 2016
Opening Reception November 14 7-9 pm
Members and Artists Only 6-7 pm
Prints are no longer limited to etchings and engravings. The medium has exploded to include many multi-step processes. Included in this exhibit are prints by twenty-seven artists, many of them first-timers at Ellarslie. The techniques range from woodblock engravings to Stonehenge Ink monotypes to silkscreens to clay monoprints and much more. The styles range from landscapes and architectural renderings to abstract collages. The quality of the work, however, is uniformly excellent showing the depth of artistic talent in the Delaware Valley.
Monoprint Fusion Workshop
Saturday, November 21st, 2015, 12-3pm
create a stunning image by combining monoprinting with drypoint in a hybrid process instructor Andrea Williams likes to call a Monoprint Fusion. You can use one technique or many, but each monoprint is singular and unique (which makes it exciting!) The drypoint technique adds a drawing element along with more painterly addition or reduction of ink. All skill levels are welcome, prior printmaking experience is helpful but not required!
