Many rough-edged, semi-transparent red rectangles layered over each other. They all have writing on them, such as "ancient" "observer" "chair" "rising sun" "ancestor," and "tongue." Over all the other words and layers, the word "MOTHER" is written twice in large scratchy black letters.

Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency 20th Anniversary Folio

The Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology was established in 2002 to provide working artists with little or no printmaking experience the opportunity to explore a new creative medium with guidance, instruction and technical assistance from an expert etching printer.

This unique exhibit will showcase prints created by nine Schnnitzer Residency alumni plus master printmaker Julia D’Amario.

In order to demonstrate the relationship between mediums each artist will showcase artwork made in their traditional medium alongside the print made during their time at Sitka. Juxtaposing the artist’s traditional medium with the print demonstrates how they translate their skills and vision across mediums. The comparisons and contrasts created can be evocative and revealing about each artist.

Several virtual artist talks are planned as part of the exhibition. Please check the Waterstone Gallery or Sitka Center for Art and Ecology websites for more information.

Artists in the exhibition are:
Baba Wagué Diakite, Sabina Haque, Linda Hutchins, Dana Lynn Louis, Ryan Pierce, Larry Thomas, Patti Warashina, Heather Watkins, Marie Watt, and Julia D’Amario.
