New Artist – Linda Wolfe

The block prints of Linda Wolfe will be on display in the Library beginning Monday, June 18th.  Linda shared some of what art means to her with us:

 

Easy RiderI have always been an artist.  It has been the one constant in my life that has helped me grow and view the world as a beautiful place.  I grew up in Oregon and was raised on a farm.  There I learned to appreciate nature, simple living and animals.

 

 

Mermaid of Penzance

I spend many wonderful hours in my studio creating new art for enjoyment and to sell.  I draw and paint as well, but use printmaking as my special form of expression.  I fell in love with the process of creating a block print while attending art school.  I work primarily with linoleum and wood blocks.  I hand print and use my Vandercook No. 2 proof press (Guinevere) and my 908 small press (Paloma).  My prints take on a life of their own.  Some need to have color added while others need to show their black and white beauty.Art should be available to everyone.  Every time we create and offer our art to those around us we are transforming our thoughts into higher ideals for a better world.

 

Linda’s work will be up through the end of the summer.  Linda will also have a display case showcasing what she uses to create her art blocks.  While you’re enjoying her work, check out the other displays in the area on The Craters of the Moon, Summer Reads, Canadian History/Facts.  The art corridor is on the 1st floor of the Library and is open all of the hours the building is open: M-Th, 7:15 am – 9 pm; F, 7:15 am  – 5 pm; Sat-Sun, 1:00 – 5:00 pm.
