Our next special show: Defining Lines opens July 30
Kent Ambler is one of our ‘local’ artists, living only about an hour from us. In being so close, we have gotten to know Kent and his wife, Peggy, well over the years. When he has a new woodblock print he will often just bring it on up. The fresh ink smell is still palpable, and the imagery is just as fresh and personal. This newest print highlights Kent’s ability to create a woodblock print that blends colors like a painting – giving us unusual depth for a woodblock. The landscape and plethora living inhabitants of our beautiful region have inspired Kent. This ode to summer is entitled Magnolia Meeting and is an exceptionally vibrant piece which we find particularly warm and exciting! To see more, click here: Kent Ambler’s Woodblock Print Gallery
