New Year, New Works Exhibition

Viewer enjoying the new work

New woodcuts by Kendall Murakami
On January 1, 2016, New Grounds Gallery hosted our opening exhibition - New - New Works by New Grounds Members. The show featured a rich array of fresh works, completed at the very end of 2015, and most of our current members showcased pieces.

Works by Shirley Levy, Dan Noyes and Wayne Chinander

The colorful, sophisticated body of new work demonstrated a variety of traditional and experimental printmaking techniques: from relief (linocut, woodcut and reduction relief) to multi-plate etching, monotype, monoprint, mixed media and gravure.
