Paula Goodman Koz: The Art of Woodblock Printing June 20 - July 27, 2019 Prince George Art & Frame
Opening June 20, 2019 at 5pm will be our next show, “Paula Goodman Koz: The Art of Woodblock Printing”a display of the varied prints of this very talented artist. Paula has worked in woodblock printing for forty years and we will show some of her work over the years.Original prints are created by using various matrixes to create the image on the paper where the image is to be viewed. These matrixes include etched copper plates, stone blocks, engraved metal plates, silk screen stencils, or carved wood, or linoleum blocks. Woodblock prints were first created in the Third Century BC by Chinese artists.
Woodblock prints are created by cutting a design into blocks of wood leaving the area to be printed above the rest of the block creating a relief image of the print to be made. They beame more familiar to the western world in the sixteenth century when Albrecht Durer used the medium to create his wonderful prints such as “The Four Horsemen”. Paula Koz creates her woodblock prints in the same manner by cutting the design into the wood blocks using a separate block for each of the colors in the finished print. A lot of work to make the enigmatic work of art we enjoy.
“Paula Goodman Koz: The Art of Woodblock Printing”will open with a reception 5-7pm on Thursday June 20, 2019 in the gallery at 1303 Jamestown Road, Williamsburg, VA. You are cordially invited to join us in celebrating this collection of original prints and the artist that created them.
