“A Woman’s Work… Interior/Exterior Exploration” examines viewpoints of six accomplished women-artists: Stephanie Roberts-Camello, Betty Canick, Leslie Graff, Pamela Lawson, Michelle Lougee, and Carole Rabe. The title is also a play on the phrase “a woman’s work is never done.” Each artist is tied to the theme by interpreting nature or using architectural elements in their work.
Pamela Lawson and Michelle Lougee explore natural environments of sea creatures and worker bees. Leslie Graff and Carole Rabe capture domestic surroundings of the American home. Stephanie Roberts-Camello and Betty Canick incorporate both interior and exterior worlds.
Heather and I shared a studio many years ago and, at times, found our work traveling in the same direction. We have maintained friendship and interest in each others work over time and distance. These images have connected and it is a joy to bring it together.
Curious about monotypes? I’ll be teaching the following workshop and classes over the next few months.

MONOTYPE: The Painted Print from an Etching Press
Whether you are an experienced artist looking for new ideas, or someone who has never put paint on paper, this technique has endless possibilities and very exciting results.
In this class, oil printmaking ink will be used to paint, draw into, roll, wipe away or dab onto a plexiglas plate. The image will go through a press onto printmaking paper creating unexpected and surprising results. An etching press will be used to transfer your image to the paper. Participants will learn how to modify the inks and explore brush and roller techniques. If you already know the basics, you can move forward at your own pace. Individual guidance will be provided.
4 week class, Tuesday, Nov. 12-3, from 10 am – 2 pm
