Going to extremes
Exhibit looks at extremes in art
A selection of prints from members of the Nova Scotia Printmakers will examine extremes in print in an upcoming exhibition taking place at the Inverness County Centre For The Arts in June.
It’s called EXTREMEs and it will feature 76 prints by 30 artists that examine the theme of extremes, with by size or thematic exploration such as weather, politics or the human condition. Artists taking part include Tina Arsenault, Sara AvMaat, Bonnie Baker, Diana Baldwin, Mark Bovey, Diane Cardoso, Cecil Day, Maria Doering, Suzanne Gauthier, Hannah Genosko, Kate Georgallas, Carlos Comez, Bob Hainstock, Dyan Hatanaka, Erin Hollingshead, Carloe Liu, Deborah Maurer, Bob Morouney, Tony Myers, Linda Oickle, David Power, Diane Rosati, Julie Rosvall, Tamsin Sloots, Anna Syperek, Kristina Vermeulen, Sally Warren, and Charley Young.
The exhibit will appear in the main gallery of the Inverness County Centre for the Arts for the month of June and run concurrently with the Nova Scotia Printmakers’ curated exhibition “Intangible” on display in the outer gallery. Each piece within the show explores pattern and texture, and all have that sometimes intangible factor, that natural fit.
The prints on display use a variety of fine printmaking techiques, including soft ground etchings, relief prints of found objects, linocut prints, lithography, and solar plate etchings.
“Intangible” features the work of Bonnie Baker, Mellisa Charbeneau, Cecil Day, Maria Doering, Suzanne Gauthier, Jay Leblanc, Meggie Richards, Julie Rosvall, and Charley Young.
Both exhibits opened Saturday at the Inverness County Centre for the Arts and both will run until June 24.
