NEW HAMPTON — Connecticut artist William Evertson will be exhibiting artists books, moku hanga prints, and drawings July 10-31 in the gallery of the Gordon-Nash Library.
An opening reception will be held July 10 from 5-8 p.m.
Evertson will exhibit original woodblock prints produced using traditional moku hanga techniques involving the carving and printing of multiple blocks that overlap to build the image. Three new prints from the artist's Photobooth Kabuki series will be on display as well as several images that illustrate scenes based on imagining endings to the unfinished 1944 novel, Mount Analogue, by French surrealist writer Rene Daumal.
Evertson's impulse for simplification over the last decade evolved from the Asian influences gained through an arts residency in Thailand working with Buddhist monks and a subsequent five year period of study with master Japanese woodblock artist Keiji Shinihara.
