In main floor gallery now until November 21, 2015
Beginning October 21, stop in our main floor gallery to view dozens of various pieces of printmaking from five regional artists. The show’s reception will be held this Saturday, October 24 from 6:30-8:30 pm. Gallery admittance and the reception are both free and open to the public.
From fish prints to woodcuts, this show is an excellent representation of the numerous forms that the printmaking art form can take. Many of the pieces are available for purchase (often both framed and unframed), and most of the artists have pieces in our gift store for you to enjoy year round!
