Reception for area artist set
Schroon Lake artist Annie Gregson will be presenting a show of her solar etchings at Willows Bistro during the month of April.
The exhibit features an opening reception from 6:30 to 8 p.m. April 8 at Willows Bistro, 3749 Main St. in Warrensburg.
The etchings were produced by a photo-chemical etching on a solar plate through UV light exposure and then printed as either an etching or relief impression. The medium provides a wide range of printed effects and can resemble lithographs, screen prints or photographic effects.
Gregson's works are inspired by scenes from nature, life experiences, and her dog, pulled together in an array of intriguing works. Her work has previously been displayed as part of several juried LARAC art shows, and an Art teachers association exhibit. Gregson, a retired Schroon Lake Central School art teacher, also teaches workshops and provides individual lessons in drawing, watercolors, printmaking, and calligraphy. for details, contact Gregson at 532-0275 or AnneGregson@gmail.com.
