Prints by John Hopkins, Louise Kalin, Ted Sheridan and Alix Hallman Travis

October 1, 2016 - 12:00pm

Prints of John Hopkins, Louise Kalin, Ted Sheridan and Alix Hallman Travis in the Commons Gallery during the month of October explore connections between artists and artists, artists and objects and artists and community. John Hopkins well known for his landscape painting has most recently exhibited at the Commons Gallery, not his landscapes but his work of strong political opinions. Now he is surprising us again with artists’ prints: monoprints from woodcut plates, to which he adds collage and paint. During the last year Hopkins and his sister, fine art printer, Louise Kalin, have been dancing a duet of printing. Or more accurately, as he says, he “has been learning both from watching Kalin and looking at her work as it evolves. Then using the basic ideas of her method” Hopkins has produced a series of mixed media monotypes of his own. Louise Kalin’s Catskill childhood nurtured a reverence for nature and the environment. The layers, the patterns and colors of her natural surroundings are embedded in the images in any Kalin print.  Read more
