Softscapes & Hardscapes: Landscape & Architecture in Printmaking
Exhibit Runs: Sept 25 to Nov 2, 2013
Reception: Oct 26 from 2 to 4 pm
(In conjunction with Lowell Celebrates Printmaking)
Lowell, MA -- The Whistler House Museum of Art is pleased to present a collection of works in participation with “Lowell Celebrates Printmaking,” a city wide exposition. The exhibition, Softscapes and Hardscapes: Landscape and Architecture in Printmaking, is a collection of work from Robert Townsend, Michal Truelsen and Remick Neeson.
Robert Townsend, a master printmaker from Georgetown, Massachusetts has worked with many well-known printmakers. Artists, from his personal collection that he is sharing for this show, include: Jim Dine, Peter Milton, Alex Katz, Mike Mazur, Vaino Kola, Aaron Fink, and Bruce Connor.
Townsend has run his studio in Georgetown since 1978 and has worked on several projects including a master printer collaboration at Graphicstudio at the University of South Florida, Tampa; New Provincetown Print Project at the Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown, MA; a master printer visiting artist program at the Carpenter Center, Harvard University; a master printer visiting artist session with Michael Mazur at Amherst College, Amherst, MA; and a master printer visiting artist program at Brooks School, North Andover, MA.
Michal Truelsen is a local artist and printmaker who is presenting collagraph prints with mixed media inspired by a her 2012 artist residency with the Great Smoky Mountain Park. The works are based on the patterns of contour lines on topographical maps. It’s a labor-intensive technique, but one that she finds immensely satisfying. “For me it is an additional way to explore the landscape, adding a new dimension to what I experience with eyes and feet,” she said.
Remick Neeson is an artist whose work is included in the permanent collection of antique prints at the WHMA. Originally from Plymouth, MA, Neeson, participated in the Works Progress Administration in 1935. His prints are also in collections at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Newark Museum in New Jersey, and Philadelphia Museum of Art.
As a featured event of the Boston Printmakers Biennial, Lowell presents a city-wide exposition of printmaking, “Lowell Celebrates Printmaking.” It will include exhibits in eight galleries throughout downtown Lowell and run from September 14 to November 3. Each venue explores a unique aspect or theme brought to life through the medium of printmaking. The link that lists all of the venues is http://thebrush.org/printshows.html. The event is supported in part by a grant from the Lowell Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts cultural, a state agency.
