Twenty-eight pieces of art are on display in “Spectrum,” a printmaking and book art exhibit, through Wednesday, June 21, at the Cade Center for Fine Arts Gallery at Anne Arundel Community College.
See how the artwork explores the vast range of possible color effects in this national show juried by Justin Strom, associate professor in printmaking and digital imaging at University of Maryland, College Park. Highlights include Mario Laplante of San Francisco’s wound paper piece, “Offering,” suggesting a carefully crafted target with gold bull’s eye, or tree rings of dendrochronology; Rachel Livedalen of Fort Worth, Texas’ “A Commotion XI,” a flashy and sly collage-laser cut feast of Day-Glo bright lines and symbols; and the surprisingly evocative “A Slice of Life,” screen print of a lattice-topped cherry pie with a hidden image in the missing pie piece, by Janet Ballweg of Bowling Green, Ohio.
The public is invited to a reception to meet the artists and juror from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 15. The exhibit is sponsored by the AACC Printmaking Club.
