Local Prinmakers Shine

Posted on: May 17th, 2013 by midcoast_author

Kay and Dick Miller of South Bristol, and Debra Arter of Damariscotta, learned this week that small prints they created will be part of the 13th Annual National Small Print Show in Creede, Colorado. Combined they will be showing monotypes, etching and a woodcut in the national show. Each print they created was less than 8 inches square. Two of Debra and Kay’s entries were selected to be part of a traveling show to the Evergreen Art Center at the conclusion of the regular venue in June.

Holly Berry’s linocuts are featured in a group exhibition at the University of Maine, Lewiston-Auburn Campus entitled Pollination: Evolving Miracles. The exhibit will be on display until June 7.

All four printmakers are active participants in the Midcoast Printmakers located in Damariscotta. Midcoast Printmakers has a wide variety of exciting events and ongoing classes at their studio located at Roundtop Farm. Consult the website for a complete listing of print classes for adults and children in various techniques. If one wants to try something new like solarplate etching or use a more traditional technique like linocut there is sure to be a qualified instructor willing to guide you.
