I’m very excited about this year’s show, and not just because my major painting is not yet done! (And I know I’m not the only one!)
Linnane Armstrong, who was one of our guest artists at the Froggwell Biennale last year, has completed work on two wonderful woodblock prints for this show. Here’s what Linnane had to say about her work:
For this years Froggwell forgeries show, I chose to make two woodblock prints from the school of… early 20th century American women block printers influenced by Japonisme/Japanese aesthetics.
I’m very excited to see these prints! You can see more of Linnane’s work on her page on this very blog, along with more about the woodblock process.
We are also very fortunate to be able to entice some artists from off island, from Seattle as well as artists from across the country to take part in our show. Nancy Armo, from Seattle, WA is exhibiting with the Froggwell regulars this year, as are repeat offenders Karen Trimble, from Baltimore MD and Judy Bates from Roanoke, VA. Nancy is proving that she has gotten into the spirit of the show, by providing the “documentation” for her works:
Karen Trimble and I met…um… some time ago when we were freshman in college, and ended up on the same dormitory floor. We were both art majors and both grew up in western PA, and I’m happy to say we are still painting and still friends all these …um…several years later.
You can see more of Karen’ s work here.
I’ll post more in a couple of days! Less than two weeks till show time.
