Printmaker helps celebrate 75 years at Maryhill Museum
An exhibition of 40 prints by internationally recognized printmaker Andrea Rich is set to open July 11 and run through Nov. 15 at Maryhill Museum of Art, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.
Drawing on printmaking traditions as diverse as Albrecht Dürer and Japanese Ukiyo-e, the Santa Cruz, California-based artist creates vibrant, detailed works that are distinctly her own. Three decades of travel have taken Rich to far-flung locales such as Madagascar, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Africa and Europe, to observe common and exotic species of birds and animals. These first-hand experiences are what she draws on to show her subjects in their natural habitats. On Thursday, July 23, at 6:30 p.m. it’s “The Art of Woodcut Printmaking: An Illustrated Lecture” by Andrea Rich. Rich will discuss the woodcut technique – its traditions, complexity and process – and also share her own work in the medium. The lecture is free to museum members / $5 non-members.
Maryhill Museum of Art, 35 Maryhill Museum Drive, Goldendale, Wash.; 509-773-3733.
