Five A6 artists, each using a different process, hint at the breadth of printmaking in “Printing the Gamut.” Paula Bullwinkel, Barbara Hudin, Adell Shetterly, Jeanette Small, and Julie Winter share series of prints created with (respectively) photopolymer, ImagOn, monotype, linocut and electro-etch.
As Central Oregon’s only publicly-accessible print studio, A6 teaches a wide variety of creative expression within printmaking. Notes Executive Director, Dawn Boone, “Printmaking is an extremely broad art form, and within it artists can find processes that closely connect to drawing, collage, painting, and photography.” According to Boone, “There are so many ways to work within printmaking. Artists can find a process that feels familiar while also pushing the envelope.”
In “Printing the Gamut,” not only do the printmaking processes vary from artist to artist, but each artist’s approach to image-making also differs. Bullwinkel and Small begin with detailed drawings. Hudin uses Processing code to create mathematically-based imagery. Shetterly works in a painterly fashion on plates with little or no permanent marks. Winter marries electro-etched metal plates with hand-carved woodcuts to produce a print with both intaglio and relief printing.
A6 will hold an opening reception April 7 from 5-8 pm as part of the First Friday Gallery Walk. “Gamut” artist Jeanette Small will be printing in the studio during the First Friday reception.
The artists of “Printing the Gamut” will give a group Art Talk in the A6 gallery on Friday, April 14 at 6 pm. Admission to the talk is $5.
