Come to the gallery for a printmaking experience with Serene Lincoln on February 16 from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. Serene’s woodcut prints represent this printmaking process in the exhibition in Demystifying Process: A PVDPrintmakers Exhibition, the Jan-Feb 2023 exhibition in the WaterFire Arts Center gallery.
Serene will be working in the gallery space on wood blocks prints, learn more about this particular printmaking process, and perhaps make a print yourself.
Woodcut printmaking is a form of relief printing where an image is carved out of a wooden block. Sections that are carved away are the image’s negative space, and the sections that remain are the positive space.
Serene Lincoln is a locally-based Rhode Island printmaker and painter. They work in the Blackstone Valley, drawing subject matter and narrative from the Cistercian monastic community Lady of the Valley that operated in Lonsdale from 1895 to 1950 when a fire burned it down. The hiking trails, fields, and roads in the surrounding areas are always featured in landscapes of their prints and paintings. Respect and awe for nature have always been a central theme in their work.
