Reception Saturday for art show at Gilmanton Year-Round Library featuring work of local high schoolers

GILFORD — Gilford High School Expressions is the title of an art show featuring the work of students, and curated by Caledonia Hackley, Reese Henderson and Kassidy Morris. The public is invited to meet the artists at a reception on Saturday, November 15 from 1-3 p.m.

The one-of-a-kind art pieces use the medium of print block making. The curators report that "ideas for the print blocks were limitless, but did require us to use no words or logos. We sketched an outline on the block and continued to sculpt the design using Speedball linoleum cutters." Once the students finished cutting out the block, they advanced to the next level of the assignment. Each student put a color of their choice on a plastic plate, and then used a brayer to smooth out the paint on the block. Next, they put a piece of colorful paper on top of the painted block to make the print come to life on the page.

Each student was required to make at least ten different prints. At the end of the printing process, the students cut out shapes of their prints and created a collection of collages. The collages selected are presented at the Gilmanton Year-Round Library during the month of November. The collection will be available for viewing during open hours at the Library. The Library is located on NH Route 140 in Gilmanton Iron Works, across from the Gilmanton School.
