Maine Printmaker's work now on exhibit
Aug. 23-Dec. 17
Sherrie York is a printmaker and a compulsive wanderer of landscapes. In her linocuts, she strives to represent the interactions of living things, both as a moment in time and as a reflection of the wider experience of life on earth.
As a printmaker she has pushed the linocut medium to be uncharacteristically realistic, treating the application of color as a watercolorist might, by glazing multiple layers of transparent inks. She is especially interested in strong rhythms and patterns between a subject and its environment and pays close attention to the shapes around an object, as well as the object itself.
Her linocuts have been chosen for national and international exhibitions, including multiples times for the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum’s prestigious Birds in Art, and the Society of Animal Artists’ Art & the Animal. Her work is also collected in numerous corporate, private and museum collections, incluidng the Gilley's.
She is also a naturalist and educator, who works with Audubon.
