Sculpture and printmaking have always had an affinity, and as Lori Taylor-Blitz
Director of Beaver Island Historical Museum says about the new exhibition at the Old Mormon Print Shop, `it’s interesting when a sculptor brings their sensibility for space to the constraints of a single plane, and unafraid to experiment and explore different means of making marks’.
The “Sculptors in Print” exhibit located at the Old Mormon Print Shop brings together selected prints by Michael Fels, Brian Ferriby, Kevin Bowen and John Sauve, each making their unique mark in print. With each artist providing a diverse approach to their printmaking the “Sculptors in Print” exhibit provides an interesting experience especially when viewed with the three dimensional artwork by the same artists.
