                              An Artist Talk with Nancy Darrell

Relief Prints

 Designing, registering blocks and printing

 

Flow will host an artist talk and demonstration by woodcut print artist Nancy Darrell on Thursday, August 14 at 5:30 pm.

Nancy will demonstrate how she designs prints and separates the colors for each block, then print several color blocks without a printing press, using a frame for registration and a barren or spoon for transferring the image to paper.

Nancy learned woodcut printmaking by trial and error while still making pottery. Since then she's absorbed relief printmaking classes at the Penland School of Crafts, studied wood engraving with Jim Horton and taken classes in letterpress printing at Asheville Bookworks.

"I aim to create relief prints that evoke an emotive response, as they often do historically. I begin with a vision inspired by contrasts, textures and shapes observed in birds, animals, plants and landscapes. I'm influenced by the woodcuts and wood engravings of the early 20th century -- Gustave Baumann, the German Expressionists and the work of Fannie Mennen. The blocks are carved in wood or linoleum. Stamps are made and used, as are watercolors. Printing is done on a cast-iron Showcard Press. With wood engravings, I aim to capture the life and landscape around me. Color plays a big role in my work, but the contrast of black and white lines and textures create drama."

Join us at Flow August 14 for food and drink, a presentation and conversation with woodcut print artist Nancy Darrell and to see a collection of her finished prints.
