Wood engraving is a relief printmaking process where an original drawing is cut into the surface of an endgrain wood block and then inked and printed to create a reflected image of the cut block. The prints are considered multiple originals created in limited editions - not reproductions or digital creations - offering an affordable entry into collecting original art works. Many of the prints in the show will be available for sale, as will the show catalog.
Come celebrate the art of wood engraving with us!
