Bliss of Being – 30 Years of Woodcut Prints


Bliss of Being – 30 Years of Woodcut Prints
Cathie Crawford
Heuser Art Gallery
Exhibition: November 21 – December 21
Reception: December 1st, 6-8pm – Heuser Art Gallery

The woodcuts of printmaker Cathie Crawford will be on display in Heuser Art Gallery November 21st – December 21st.  Crawford holds an MFA from Bradley University and a BFA from The Ohio State University.  Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.

From the artist:
My color reduction woodcuts celebrate the magical moments of my life: Bliss of Being. I strive to capture the truth and beauty of my subjects.

Deeply enamored with the ever-changing hues of water, sky and land, I use color for its emotional impact. I have always been especially attracted to water, seeking it out for its restorative powers. On a symbolic level water represents a powerful life giving force — a source of replenishment, rejuvenation, renewed energy and hope.
