SWIRLING CURRENTS AT GROVELAND GALLERY
September 9 - October 14, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 9, 2-5 p.m.
Over the past 25 years, Jean Gumpper’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. She is widely recognized as one of the finest reduction woodcut artists in the United Sates. In all her work, Gumpper’s complex images focus on specific elements in the landscape creating compositions that often omit the context of land or a horizon line. Such an approach allows her expressive, multi-layered landscapes to hover between realism and abstraction.
MASTERS OF REDUCTION WOODCUT AT DAVIDSON GALLERIES
August 3 - September 2, 2017
Traditional color woodcuts are printed from separate blocks, one created for each color. In reduction woodcut the colors are all printed from one block, each color in succession (usually light to dark), as the original surface of the block is cut away or reduced. This produces rich, layered, painterly prints. Featured Artists: Karen Kunc, Jean Gumpper, Zha Sai, Srijai Kuntawang, and Gordon Mortensen.
