including etching, collagraph, linocut, monoprint, monotype, woodblock, and digital manipulation.
“Under PRESSure” exhibit will include the works of artists Christina Altfeld, Margarita Cantu, Beverly Decker, Virginia Furmanski, Judy Gibbs, Bay Hallowell, Tiger Huang, Most, Colleen M. Kelly, Veronica Walmsley Lambert, Sandra McCullough, Inés Monguió and Leslie Plimpton.
Their individual styles are as unique as the artists themselves.
These artists hail from Ventura, Ojai, Summerland, and Santa Barbara—with some members
participating in additional organizations such as the Los Angeles Printmaking Society, the
California Society of Printmakers, and the Santa Barbara Printmakers.
The inkspots present their annual group exhibition at 643 Project Space each November. In
addition to their work in the gallery, the inkspots collaborate on an annual folio or book project.
The folio this year will include a limited edition print by each artist and will be offered for sale.
There will also be a FREE drawing for the inkspots 2019 Folio during the opening reception.
