New Work by Guild Member Cat Ciccolo Tucker

Cat Ciccolo Tucker has recently brought in new work to the Gallery. She recently visited Italy. It has been a wonderful influence on her work

Influenced by recent trips abroad, my new work at the gallery is mostly intaglio, drypoint and mezzotint printmaking.  I am drawn to layers of repeating pattern, as in the view of countless rooftops and the intricate detail of an ornate picture frame.  This new work tends to hover between realistic and abstracted subject matter.  The multi-step processes of printmaking with zinc plates, rockers, acid baths and soaked paper is time-consuming, somewhat unpredictable... but, also very rewarding and deliberate.  - Cat Ciccolo Tucker

Cat has new prints framed and unframed as well as new greeting cards. Stop by and take a look
