“Emergence” by Adabel Allen was a hit!

Adabel Allen is a well-known artist in Albuquerque and has many family and friends who come to support her as an artist. It was pouring rain out the night of her opening and people came anyway! It was lovely; all the smiles, hugs and good energy that everyone brought with them. Adabel was delighted to have her work hanging at New Grounds and we are proud to represent her. At each opening we have a featured artist give a demonstration of a printmaking process. For this opening she demoed a two plate gravure printmaking process.
She has many techniques up her sleeve that she uses in her work. Even experienced printmakers had a difficult time figuring out how she did it. As seen in the piece, “Nesting-Safety”, there are many colors and layers that have been applied using stencils and selective wiping.
A review of her solo show can be found at the Weekly Alibi newspaper.
