Access Gallery is excited to feature Carved Impressions, new printmaking works by Access Gallery artists. In fall of 2023, artist Victoria Adams-Kotsch worked with Access artists in a variety of printmaking processes including gel plate monotypes, polystyrene tile printing, monotypes on plexiglass, letterpress, linocut reduction printing, jigsaw linocut, and multi-block linocut techniques. The resulting artworks explore a variety of subjects. Through various flora and fauna, the viewer is invited into seeing nature from the artist’s perspective. Ponder the human condition through fashion, solitary objects, and gender non-conformity.
Participating Artists: Allie Gestner, Blossom, Brittany Murdock, Enchanted Dichotomy, Erik Hoy, Heather H., Rebecca Petty, Skylar K.
Teaching Artist: Victoria Adams-Kotsch
Join us on Friday, March 15 from 6 PM - 8 PM for an artist talk and hands-on demonstration of tabletop letterpress led by Victoria Adams-Kotsch. Discover the fascinating history of letterpress printing and try your hand at pulling prints on our vintage C&P Pilot (6.5 x 10) platen press. Immerse yourself in the rhythmic dance of type and paper during this engaging session—an exploration where history meets hands-on creativity. All are welcome to join us for an unforgettable encounter with the timeless magic of letterpress!
