White-line Woodblock Prints by Ingrid Davis
December 1, 2018 – January 2, 2019
Ingrid Davis’ white-line woodblock prints are featured in a December exhibit at Plainsboro Library Gallery. This type of multi-colored print is made from one woodblock, with carved “white” lines separating the individual colored areas. Davis’ landscapes and still life prints are soft and vibrant; and the relatively simple compositions are enhanced by the detail of the wood block’s grain. A reception will be held on Sunday, December 2, 2 – 4 pm, where visitors can take the opportunity to see samples of the woodblocks and the tools used; and to have the process explained by the artist (3pm). The exhibit runs December 1 to January 2.
