Elizabeth Colborne Wood Cuts

I went to the Whatcom museum and art gallery to see the work of a  Washington state artist, Elizabeth Colborne  (1885-1948) , who produced beautiful wood block prints and paintings.  Photography isn’t allowed at the gallery but I did purchase the gallery guide which has some great reproductions of her work.  It was an exceptionally interesting show for me because some of the images are from working proofs and really do a great job of showing her method.  The show has been on since June but ends soon (Sept. 21, 2011),  it certainly has inspired me to make some more prints.
