Power & Beauty: Ours to Notice and Respect

by Maria Kaiser

Artist’s Reception
Friday,December 9, 5 to 7 pm

Meet the artist to discuss her works in the exhibit Power & Beauty: Ours to Notice and Respect. Free, with light refreshments provided.

Featuring woodcuts, reduction woodcuts and etchings by Maria Kaiser. Woodcut is a relief printing technique in printmaking where an artist carves an image into the surface of a block of wood, leaving the printing parts level with the surface while removing the non-printing parts. Areas that the artist cuts away carry no ink, while images at the surface level carry the ink to produce the print. Maria enjoys extending memories of natural environments by etching them onto zinc plates, carving them into wood blocks and brushing them on to paper. She prefers the physical movement this work demands to the use of computer programs to enhance the photographs. This exhibit is on view through March 9.
