We’re thrilled to welcome Peter Nevins to Land on Saturday, February 16th from 2-5pm for a free printmaking demonstration.
Peter will be brining a large collection of his latest prints for an exhibition and will be on-hand to discuss his techniques.
His process of carving into giant wood blocks to create multiple layers is a true wonder to behold in person. You’ll see the depth texture of each layer come to life.
Thank you to everyone who came out this weekend to see Mimi Williams art exhibition and a special thanks to all the folks who attended her free printmaking workshop. We had a wonderful time hosting her and all of you!
Her show of original prints will be up in the gallery through Sunday, February 10th — so be sure and swing by and check them out if you haven’t yet.

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.
We’re thrilled to have our annual “Off The Wall” event going on upstairs in the gallery through the holidays.
We’ve stuffed the gallery with a great collection of framed prints and posters — perfect for gift giving.
Unlike our normal shows, if you see something you like — you just take it off the wall, bring it downstairs, pay for it, and take it home right there and then.
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.
Don’t miss the opening of this tremendous collection of new work by acclaimed artist and New York Times best-selling author Emily Winfield Martin.
