Exhibit: Ropes, Ribbons, Twigs, and Things
Pictured: Red Core, 16″ w x 14″ h, intaglio print
The Glen Arbor Arts Center’s fall, Lobby Gallery exhibition is Ropes, Ribbons, Twigs, and Things, a series of intaglio prints by Traverse City artist Dorothy Anderson Grow. This small exhibit is on display September 2 through December 15.
Grow practices the venerable art of printmaking with 21st century tools and materials. This series of works demonstrate the fluid way in which she moves between old methods and new materials. Although she creates an etched image for printing, Grow works in a variety of other media to achieve the end result she desires – whether through pencil, paint, or adding collaged elements to the composition. Grow maintains an active studio practice focused entirely on abstract and non-objective subjects — hand-pulled, one-of-a-kind prints full of bold shapes, colors, and the sensation of texture.
Ropes, Ribbons, Twigs, and Things is viewable during GAAC business hours starting September 2, 2022.
