Gallery Printing Show

 

We have a great show this month at the red thread,thanks so much to all the on-line artist that sent work for the show.  It looks great, photos of reception coming next week.

We are also having the Virginia Historic Garden tours today, so it will be busy.

 

 

The Art of Printing

 

The printed word and illustration is forever tied to our past. With new technology hand printing may be considered a lost art.   But today many artisans are embracing the skills of these techniques and bringing there own new spin to these traditional forms of art.

Fabric, paper, wood, metal all become the “canvas” for applications of ink and paint.

We present this invitational showcase of art work created using any one of various printing techniques, including but not limited to block printing, lithograph, stencil/screen printing, mono type, and letterpress.

 

Opening Reception Saturday April 26, 4-6pm

Music by Martha Giles, Hammer Dulcimer

 

Show continues through June 7, 2008
