Artists’ Reception: April 5, 2006,
"Color Prints" is an exhibit of innovative work by Beth Ganz,
Lynn Margileth, Diane Miller (curator), Marjorie Miller, and Sarah
Plimpton, established artist-printmakers with distinguished exhibiting
careers, who have studied printmaking for many years with Vijay Kumar at
the Manhattan Graphics Center. All five artists demonstrate uniquely
creative approaches to the art of color printmaking.
Beth Ganz prints her photogravure images on Japanese Gampi paper
and layers these prints over vintage wallpaper, creating dreamlike effects
reflecting her experiences in Asia. Lynn
Margileth's interest in inner and metaphysical experiences are
expressed in her original use of color and references to ancient texts and
symbols. Diane Miller prints intaglios, collagraphs and monotypes on
thin Japanese papers and collages fragments of her prints over her own
artist-made paper. Her circular images, called "Haikus" are
lyrical and tactile evocations of the natural world. Marjorie Miller
prints unique images by layering and varying her colors, passing her
plates through the press in many stages, often using chine collé.
Sarah Plimpton's aquatints are poetic abstractions, full of texture
and movement, with intensely resonant color achieved through viscosity
OIA is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1976 by artists.
