The North Coast Printmakers Collective will be showing original artwork at the Seaside Public Library. The exhibit will be displayed in the Community Room and foyer through Jan. 26.
The North Coast Printmakers Collective endeavors to promote education and excellence in fine art printmaking. Formally established in 2010, this group originally formed to raise public awareness of printmaking as an art genre and to find venues for their collective work, and has thus far offered six successful public exhibits. The group is comprised of established and emerging artists working frequently in a unique community-based program with some shared studio space at Clatsop Community College in Astoria.
These inspired and obsessed artists produce quality original prints reflecting personal insights and shared aesthetics. While the incentive to work cooperatively is primarily based on the common need to access printmaking equipment and studio space, an outcome has been growth through the interactive flow of ideas and technical knowledge. Included in the NCPC’s repertoire are monotypes, monoprints, intaglio prints of all varieties, and relief prints including linocuts and woodblocks.
The Seaside Public Library is located at 1131 Broadway. For more information call 503-738-6742 or visit www.seasidelibrary.org.
