September featured artist is Emily Maryniak. Emily is a Madison printmaker working mainly with relief and silkscreen prints. She says; “My favorite part of both processes is that moment when you first see the image after printing; when you peel it from the block on the press or when you first lift up the screen. There is a little bit of mystery and magic involved in this historic process and I feel so lucky to experience it! “
Emily’s artist statement:
All of my art comes from nature. I strive to capture the essence of the landscape, person, animal or object that I am drawing. For me, drawing is thinking; it helps me to clarify the things I see in my environment and then allows me to share them with others. I then make prints from my drawings which allow me to experiment with layers of color and line quality. Recently, the subject matter of my prints have been the things I appreciate around me in Madison; the the rows of houses, the boats sailing on Lake Mendota, the effect of wind on the water, a soybean farm field with silo that has been standing for generations, and fresh produce grown in the soil from a tiny seed. I hope that my art encourages others to notice and appreciate these same things in nature.
Emily will have her work showcased at Hatch Art House from September 1st-30th with an artist reception Friday, September 12th from 6-9pm. Facebook event page
