Printmaker Adell Shetterly with “Impressions” in November
November 6, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Printmaker Adell Shetterly’s exhibit of hand-pulled prints, “Impressions”, opens at Tumalo Art Co. November 6, from 4-7pm. The show highlights a variety of print processes from monotype, monoprint, collagraph and combinations of print forms and media. From memories and moments in time, Adell’s images integrate abstraction, withcolor and texture inspired by natural environs.
Much like the first impressions we make on others upon a first meeting, the first impressions made from a plate as it contacts a sheet of paper pulled through a press deeply influence the direction of the printmaker. Each print technique creates unique effects that cannot be created by any other means.
“Many of my works are inspired by encounters with nature and recorded with photography to be brought forth at a later date to explore the question, ‘What if’? What if I focus on just this piece in the photo? What if I quiet my mind and remember the sense of place or feeling from this photo?”, explains Adell. “I am fascinated by printmaking as an art form; there are so many permutations. Design possibilities, techniques and variations in each technique provide hours of creative exploration. Every new work reinforces what I do know and it also instigates excitement for what comes next. Printmaking is innovative, creative and wide open to interpretation. It has its own lexicon and l hope, lasting impressions.”
