Local printmaker Sherrie York will speak at the Bremen Public Library, 204 Waldoboro Road, Bremen, on Thursday, May 30 at 7 p.m.
Linoleum block prints, or linocuts, share their origins with naval ships, their process with woodcuts, and their history with artists from Picasso to Queen Elizabeth. Visually, linocut styles run the gamut from graphic social commentary to delicate floral, landscape, and wildlife images.
Internationally recognized and Bristol-based linocut printmaker York will share her own process, inspiration, and nature-inspired work.
York’s linocuts have been presented in national and international exhibitions, including the Woodson Art Museum’s prestigious “Birds in Art,” and the Society of Animal Artists’ “Art & the Animal,” and her work is represented in corporate and museum collections in the United States and abroad. In Maine, her work can be seen at the Stable Gallery in Damariscotta and the Green Lion Gallery in Bath. York serves on the board of the Society of Animal Artists, is the coordinator of the Audubon Artist Residency at Hog Island Audubon Camp in Bremen, and is a current board member of Mid-Coast Audubon.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 529-5572.
