Now Showing at Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery: The Portfolio Project by the Peregrine Press Artists.
Reception June 25th from 5- 7 p.m. The Portfolio Project is presented by 24 Peregrine Press artists. The Peregrine Press is a nonprofit printmaking cooperative in Portland, Maine. Several years ago twenty-four artists each executed a print of the same size for this Project. Editions were limited to ten prints. The prints were placed in a Portfolio for purchase. Now in permanent collections throughout New England, there are only three Portfolios left to acquire in their entirety. One set of prints was framed but has not been available for individual sale until exhibit at Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery. This diverse exhibit explores printmaking techniques as well as imagery. Etchings with chine colle, woodcuts , Xerox lithographs , monotypes, silkscreens, dry point and solar plate etching are among the processes used in the exhibit. Images vary from landscapes to armadillos.
