Play with light as you expose, develop, and print Solarplate etching plates. These plates are exposed to light, developed in water and then printed in the traditional intaglio process, using an etching press. This amazing technology can produce images resembling photogravure, lithography and traditional etchings, and best-of-all, it is non-toxic and easy! Bring a work of art, photograph and/or a collage you would like to use as inspiration.
Walt Padgett is a professional artist working in printmaking, watercolor painting, and sculpture and has taught for over 40 years at college and university levels. Retired from full-time teaching he now offers private workshops and select classes.

Kathryn Jacobi, Mortal Furniture #2, 2012, oil on paper
Jacobi presents figurative works in oil, ‘Digital Hybrids,’ and computer generated prints inspired by her waking dreams, visions she experienced during the state between sleep and wakefulness. Classically trained as a painter, her realistic style lends to aesthetically rich narratives with human figures engaged in mysterious, frightening, and funny scenarios. Jacobi’s work depicts states of being that are both familiar and unsettling.
In her artist statement, Jacobi

Paintings by Robert Beckmann & Clifford Wilton Sculpture by Ellen Wishnetsky-Mueller People’s Choice Award for Best Gallery – 2012 A Taste of Ashland
Transitions: Paintings by Robert Beckmann & Clifford Wilton Scultpure by Ellen Wishnetsky-Mueller Clifford Wilton’s recent work sees a departure from his lush figurative abstracts to simpler graphic compositions of urban skyscapes. Mostly monochromatic, these paintings add a new dimension to a familiar, yet mostly ignored landscape.

When does a simplification of empirical reality become abstract? How do we find a balance between order and chance and, acknowledging that our consciousness is fragmented (by our pace and media disjunction), how can we become whole again and possibly heal our world?
Beckmann’s work has been exhibited
