Schroon lake artist/printmaker Anne Gregson poses with one of her Solarplate works, ‘Too Much Carnivale. ‘Three of her prints are featured in the ‘Winter Magic’ exhibit that opens this weekend in the Art in Chester Gallery.
continued Sometimes her final print is different from the vision of it she had when she began, but for Gregson, this creative process is simply normal and an important part of what makes art fun for the artist and interesting for the viewer. She explained that creating art was like a rubber band. When she begins a print, she stretches the limits of possibility as far as they can take her. Then, like the rubber band contracting and strengthening around the object it binds, she gives her print a final, definite form.
During the “Winter Magic” exhibition, Gregson will display etchings made during the summer of 2003 when she studied under master printmaker Dan Welden in Florence, Italy. In all three prints, the characters are wearing masks like the masks worn by Italian street performers or by Mardi Gras revelers in New Orleans.
