THE TACTILE PRINT
The Tactile Print: Collagraphs by Five Artists This group exhibition is curated by Hannah Richards and includes work by Polly Cassel, Alix Heigler, Lynn Peterfreund, Hannah Richards, and Esther White. These five artists bring a broad of backgrounds and practices ranging from woodwork to fiber to paint, in addition to working in the rich tradition printmaking. Collagraph is a printmaking technique derived from the French verb "to bind.” The process can be both additive and reductive, and results in a unique image. In these singular prints there are often several layers of form and texture building up into the final image, and the embossed surfaces yield a complex and satisfying tactility.
