Valerie Willson, QMP 25

Max Beckmann wrote "Art is creative for the sake of realization, not for amusement: for transfiguration, not for the sake of play. It is the quest of our self that drives us along the eternal and never-ending journey we must all make." 

Valerie Willson's quest brought her and a very large etching bed press to Vashon Island in 1993 where she founded Quartermaster Press and has shared her excitement for print process ever since.  Her journey has also led her to explore other media as well, including: pastel, paint, en caustic and most recently photography.  ValerieWillson.com

For the Quartermaster Press 25 year retrospective exhibit at Vashon Center for the Arts Koch Gallery,  April 6 - May 25, Valerie Willson has chosen to display etchings created in the period that the press itself was made and when she was exploring everything that multiple copper plate etching might yield.  This is Nasturtiums a three copperplate etching with Intaglio and aquatint, 19 3/4 x 14 3/4 in.
