The Printmakers Hand

Northwind Art Center in Port Townsend WA is hosting an exhibit of fine art prints this month (July 6-29).

The show called “The Printmakers Hand” was juried by Sam Davidson of Davidson Galleries, Seattle WA and sponsored by Port Townsend printmakers guild Corvidae Press.
 
I was pleased to have Amphora Asterion, a Monoprint from my Asterion series, selected to hang in “The Printmaker’s Hand II”.

Amphora Asterion was created using paper stencils, Collograph and by printing dry pigment into wet ink. 

I am often inspired by Greek Black and Red amphora painting.  This new print was the first of many exploring amphora shapes as backgrounds and subjects.
