Day into Night Opening Reception at The Old Print Gallery Sept. 16

The Old Print Gallery announces Day into Night, a new show of linocuts and woodblocks by NY artist Emily Trueblood, which will run from September 16- November 12, 2011. The exhibit will open with a free nighttime reception on Friday, September 16, from 5-8pm at the Old Print Gallery, where the artist will be in attendance to discuss her work and artistic process.

This collection of prints is inspired by the bold, graphic lines of city architecture, juxtaposed by the flux of time and nature. Trueblood uses a limited but expressive color palette to highlight the transition of time. She also depicts many of the same buildings in her prints, each print with altered hues and details to emphasize the inherent instability of nature and time. In doing so, her prints also bring attention to the resilient and stoic nature of the buildings in our steel-forged and limestone-carved cities.
