The Kennebec Valley Art Association is pleased to announce its first exhibition of 2013 at the Harlow Gallery. On view January 18 to February 9, 2013, ingrained presents the work of five Maine printmakers: Martha Briana of Northport, Anthony Kulik of Belfast, Donna Parkinson of Freeport, Willy Reddick of Belfast and Sarah Vosmus of Bowdoinham.
Meet the artists at an opening reception on Friday, January 18 from 5-8 pm.
Pervaded by the powerful presence of the Maine forest, the Harlow Gallery’s ingrained brings together five printmakers working in uniquely different styles and processes. Whether physically carving into the grain for a woodcut or collecting samples and sketches, the artists are working in connection to the woods. The prints exhibited speak to the breadth, methods and personalities of individual artists working in the printmaking medium, ranging from traditional to experimental. This exhibit goes from intricate and detailed to the boldly abstracted patterns and colors; to intimate wall-hung works to space commanding ceiling hung works and three-dimensional constructions. The Harlow is excited to bring together these artists in a compelling and vibrant exhibit of contemporary printmakers in the still months of winter, connecting viewers to what it means to be “ingrained”.
