October 5 – November 19, 2017

A special invitation by David Martin, the curator for Cascadia Art Museum, prompted 14 WPW Artists venture into the territory of white line prints.  White-line woodblock printmaking began in 1915, the first woodblock printmaking unique to the United States. Western artists admired the Eastern traditional type of woodblock printing made by the Japanese artists. The Eastern art form required several blocks of wood to produce a finished print. The Western printmakers of 1915 created their own style of woodblock printing using only one block of wood.
The method started with a group of six artists in Provincetown, Massachusetts and this new form of woodblock printmaking became known as the Provincetown print, or white-line woodcut.

David has written a new book called “Territorial Hues: The Color Print and Washington State 1920 – 1960” on Northwest color printmaking which will be released at the same time.

Our own Julie Fisco will be doing a live demonstration of white-line woodcut printing for the Edmonds Art Walk evening, on Thursday October 19th.
