Celebrate with us! Come one, come all! Win a $ 250 gift certificate for art, or a class of your choice. This is a great opportunity to meet local artists and see the great art they are printing (by hand) at New Grounds! We will have food, music and plenty of beautiful art to see!

Date and Time: September 5, 5 - 8 PM (A First Friday Artscrawl Event)

Found in Nature: Etchings by Japanese Masterprinter Ando Shinji

#46 Forest Themes
Multiple Plate Etching
16.5 x 10.25"

New Grounds is proud to introduce to New Mexico this extremely accomplished artist. Shinji’s botanical etchings merge Western and Japanese sensibilities. His images often emanate out of a soft shadow into subdued light, giving them a sense of wonder, as if seen unexpectedly in their inherent beauty.

Exhibition dates: September 5 - 27
(Early Bird Preview: September 2 - 19)

Artscrawl Reception: September 19, 5 – 8:00 PM (The artist will be present)

Demonstration during the reception: Shinji will discuss the multi-plate etching process from 6:30 – 7 PM.
