Reception: Jill Jensen – Fabric Art – Virginian Hotel

Time: July 18 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Cost: Free

Join us on the evening of Thursday, July 18th, for a reception at The Virginian Hotel Gallery and experience Jill’s nature-inspired woodcut and cyanotype art exhibition.

From the Artist:

“My work combines my love of bold graphic images and intense color. Woodcut printing provides me with the opportunity to create very bold images with sharp contours and positive and negative spaces. I enjoy the process of designing and carving the wood printing plates. Printing these plates, some of which are quite large onto white fabric provides its own unique challenges compared to printing on paper. I then complete my vision with the application of color through paint. In this way, I can combine the crisp black images with flowing color. Stitching adds the final part of the process. I use matching or contrasting thread to enhance the imagery in piece.”
