The Hand-Pulled Prints of Betsey Garand
APRIL 2 – June 15, 2018
Curated by Dian Parker
These recent prints of Betsey Garand represent the continuous balance and growth of physical and psychological life. The colors are layered biomorphic and geometric shapes, combining delicate nuances with accents of vibrancy and transparency. Garand uses a combination of techniques; woodcut, monotype, pochôir, spit-bite aquatint, lift-ground aquatint, and à la poupée. The prints create the luscious varieties of form, color, and change inherent in nature. These works are fluid, amorphic, richly colored, and intensely dynamic.
Betsey Garand is presently Senior Resident Artist at Amherst College in the Department of Art and the History of Art, where she is head of printmaking. Garand has shown in many exhibitions and in numerous public and private art collections; Dadapost Gallery-Berlin, Germany; Santa Barbara Museum of Art; Hammer Museum’s Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts; Arkansas Arts Center; Tokyo Geijutsu Daigaku-Japan; Art Museum of Estonia. Awards include a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, and fellowships at Dorland Mountain Arts Colony and the MacDowell Colony.

POST-APOCALYPTIC WOODCUTS by Peter Schumann of Bread & Puppet January 15 – March 2, 2018
Opening reception, Feb. 3, with Performance by Peter Schumann & Co.
Inspired by Albrecht Durer’s 1495 apocalypse woodcuts, Peter Schumann cut this
series in masonite in the early months of 2017. Lila Winstead added assemblages of
carved words, from the Bread and Puppet print shop archives, and printed them
on large muslin fabric. These Post-Apocalyptic woodcuts for the 3/4 Empire address the brand-new horror of our own Empire Boss, who threats to eliminate whole countries for non-compliance with Empire politics.
