October 5- October 28

Linda Snouffer, David Luke, Nancy Stalnaker Bundy

Opening Reception: Friday, October 5, 4 - 7 pm

Three different artists will explore environmental impact in this group show.
As a group, the works examine the juxtaposition between the protected and the vulnerable, the comfortable and the violent, the relaxed and the analytical.

David Luke uses photography and digital manipulation to make visible the imminent ecological transformations in Minnesota’s northern boreal forests due to climate change.

Linda Snouffer’s interpretive printmaking captures the grass movement of prairie scenes and creates forest scenes with grasses melding into trees and back into prairie again.

Nancy Stalnaker Bundy’s photography includes architectural remnants and artifacts from former mines as well as their surrounding landscapes.

What does  studio time look like?
First, a surface is prepared for printing -- in this case, I used chalk pastels to paint the landscape with sky, horizon, and foreground. 
Water based ink is applied to both sides of the grasses and they are individually positioned onto the background. 
A blotting paper is laid on top of the inky plant composition. 
Each grass blade, stem, and seed tassel is hand pressed to leave ink impressions on both the bottom surface and the blotting paper. 

The printing this day resulted in the pieces "Alley Grass" and "Simplicity."

Grasses collected on walks through neighborhood alleys, printed on cotton rag paper,
and unpigmented tissue used for the blotter print. with pastel enhancements on each.
