Prints for "Autumn's Arrival" by David Hale
Sharing the story of his daughter Autumn Ember’s adoption, each page of David Hale’s new children’s book, Autumn’s Arrival, is illustrated with a beautiful depiction of woodland imagery created through the method of woodblock reduction printmaking. The accompanying exhibition includes both carved blocks and finished, multi-color woodcuts, revealing part of the artist’s labor-intensive process. In addition, a second show called “Elemental Clayscapes” features a dozen porcelain pieces made in collaboration with ceramic artist Marci White. This book signing and print sale will be followed by an opening reception on Sept. 5 to celebrate the exhibition, which will remain on view through Oct. 12.
Presented by local artist David Hale and featuring original woodcut compositions that illustrate his new children’s book, Autumn's Arrival, which tells the story of his daughter Autumn's adoption. Books, prints, blocks and sketches will be available for purchase. See Calendar Pick on p. 12.
