Linoleum Block Printing Demonstration with Julie Abowitt

Linoleum Block Printing Demonstration with Julie Abowitt

Date: Saturday, June 1, 2019

Time: 2:00pm– 4:00pm

Location: CCA Lobby

Free and open to the public!

Join printmaker and painter, Julie Abowitt, during her demonstration of linocutting, the relief printmaking technique that has monopolized her creative energy for the past seven years. Her work is on exhibit through June 1 in the lobby of the Columbia Center. She creates linos in the traditional black and white manner, as well as hand-painting them with watercolors and acrylics, occasionally blurring the line between printmaking and painting.

Linocuts were used as early as 1905 for posters and became more popular during the 1920’s. During the 1950’s, Picasso and Matisse used the technique in innovative ways. Since then, the technique has been accepted as “fine art” and serious artists have been drawn to its possibilities.

Drop by the Center any time between 2:00 and 4:00 Saturday, June 1, to see Julie work on a lino, show examples of work and materials, and answer your questions. Leave time before or after to see her exhibition and the “Off the Wall” exhibition in the main gallery.
