Live Printmaking Demonstration on Sunday, January 20th from Noon to 1pm.
Olympia, Washington-based printmaker Mimi Williams comes to Land in January 2019.
“My work is inspired by my community and the incredible beauty of the Pacific Northwest. My images are often narrative with the intention of connecting with the viewers, who in turn can find their own stories.”
Mimi works exclusively in linoleum cut block printing. She draws the image on paper and then then transfer it to a linoleum block where she carves the image, creating negative and positives space.
She then rolls ink on the carved linoleum block, place the paper onto the ink and impress the image by hand with the back of a wooden spoon. She adds color by printing colored paper and collaging those pieces onto the initial print.
She’ll be showing original prints in the gallery with a reception on Saturday afternoon and then hosting a demonstration showcasing her techniques on Sunday. Both events are free and open to the public.
Artist Nikki McClure returns to Land to share the original pieces from her 2019 calendar as well as paper-cuts from her new book with The Decemberists’ Colin Meloy about the legendary Pete Seeger “The Golden Thread.”
Using only an x-acto knife, Nikki transforms a single piece of black paper into something magical. Pulling inspiration from the world around her, she creates a strong, thoughtful, female-driven narrative of life in the Pacific Northwest through her paper-cuts.
Opening reception Saturday, November 10th from 2 to 4p.
Show runs daily from November 10 – December 2, 2018.

The show open to the public daily August 10 – September 23, 2018.
