Art Alliance Gallery Downtown presents IN PRINT, a group show of eight Centre County artists that explores tradition and innovation within creative process.
What do sculpture, wearable art, and printmaking have in common? Printmaking as an artistic practice requires precision and foresight. Today’s print artists span material, context, and technique in a relentless effort to stretch the boundaries of their field and think critically about the world through their work. And yet, within this exploration, process remains central to practice. The cast and printed work of Disruptive Jewelry and the poetic exactitude of Stainton’s ceramic vessels are similarly shaped by process. IN PRINT is a cooperative study in traditional and experimental forms of mark-making in both two-dimensional and sculptural objects, and brings together an exciting mix of subjects, styles, and media to look at process as a guiding principle in the creation of artistic objects.
We work in wood, metal castings, 3D printing and other media.
I discovered my love for block printmaking through the art of papercutting.
My current focus is stone lithography, an almost magical process whereby a print is produced by first drawing an image on a stone…

A few years ago I began studying printmaking, blending a lifelong interest in multiples and an attraction to textures, strong colors and bold graphic shapes.
For me, there is a distinction between what is merely seen and that which is felt and tacitly understood.
My work responds to patterns in nature or human habits as they reveal themselves through time.
