Five artists from Bend printmaking studio Atelier 6000 will showcase their work in the exhibit “Printing the Gamut” through March 17 in the North Santiam Hall Gallery at Linn-Benton Community College, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany.

An artist reception will be held in the Gallery February 8 from 12 to 1 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments provided.

The A6 artists use different processes, hinting at the breadth of printmaking. Exhibiting artists are Paula Bullwinkel, Barbara Hudin, Adell Shetterly, Jeanette Small and Julie Winter showing prints created with photopolymer, ImagOn, monotype, linocut and electro-etch.

A6 Executive Director Dawn Boone said, “Printmaking is an extremely broad art form, and within it artists can find processes that closely connect to drawing, collage, painting and photography. There are so many ways to work within printmaking, that artists can find a process that feels familiar while also pushing the envelope.”

In “Printing the Gamut,” not only does the printmaking process vary from artist to artist, but each artist’s approach to image-making also differs.

Bullwinkel and Small begin with detailed drawings; Hudin uses processing code to create mathematically-based imagery; Shetterly works in a painterly fashion on plates with little or no permanent marks; Winter marries electro-etched metal plates with hand-carved woodcuts to produce a print with both intaglio and relief printing; and Shetterly and Small often add mixed-media to the printed surface.

A6 is a non-profit art studio and gallery in Bend centered on printmaking and book arts and presents monthly exhibits of contemporary original prints and artist books. For more information, visit atelier6000.org.

LBCC art galleries are free and open to the public weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
