A group show of monoprints by contemporary printmakers.

Local printmakers came together at Crow Shadow Studios and created stunning monotypes. These are uniquely different, each original print evokes a sense of place and time. Through color, layers, bold lines and shapes each monoprint is full of the  energy of life either representative or abstractly through emotion. This show is sure to transport yourself to a magical space. Chris Harmon, Fritz Koch, Jemila Hart, Ahuva Zaslavski, Jenn Feeney, Mel Townsend.

"Color Pop"

Sept 5 - Oct 25, 2023

Let the bounce of color move you through each work of art

Local artists Noriko Sugita, Annie Meyer, and Mel Townsend new work plays color and shapes to evoke feelings.  Sugita and Meyer are printmakers that use their inks in bold ways. Sugita uses complex mark making with layers of colors that weave into playful designs that dazzles your eye. Meyer's color field monoprints are layer on top layer of color that radiates light, her trees and horizon line bring the landscape to a modern composition. Townsend's mix of figurative and bridge work capture the energy of her subjects by bold color and brush work following her strong expressionist roots.
