Courthouse Gallery Fine Art is pleased to present “Studio Picks,” a juried show highlighting new work selected from the studios of their gallery artists. There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, December 5 from 5–7pm. The show runs from December 5–December 23, 2018. The event is free and open to the public.
Many of the artworks in the show are oil paintings created in late summer or fall. Other mediums include a monoprint by Susan Amons, a digital montage by Jeffery Becton, silver gelatin prints by Lisa Tyson Ennis, and one-of-a kind tri-color gum prints by Alan Vlach. Vlach gum prints are made from photographs he took of wheatpaste graffiti in Portland, Maine, and New York City. Gum printing is a nineteenth century process using a mixture of gum Arabic, photosensitive dichromate, and watercolor pigment that is brushed on paper, dried, and exposed to ultraviolet light under an enlarged negative.
