The Art of Jeanne Norton Hammett

January 27 - January 30

A special visiting artist event!
We are featuring the art of Jeanne Norton Hammett. She creates incredible Serigraphs that reflect the natural beauty of our region. Serigraph, Screen print, Silkscreen; all those terms refer to the same process. Silk screening has been around for a long time. The medium’s roots lie deep in ancient history, originating in China and Japan as a technique for applying stencils to fabrics and screens. Europeans created wonderful wallpapers with this stenciling process. Toulouse Lautrec was famous for producing posters advertising events that featured dancers doing the “can can”. During the 1930’s a number of American artists began making artworks in screen print and by the end of the decade the term “serigraph” from the Greek serikos, silk, and “graphos”, writing, was coined by a noted art historian, to distinguish artists’ screen prints from commercial uses of screen printing. The gallery exhibit opens December 2nd and runs through the end of January, Thursday through Sunday each week: Dec 2nd – Jan 30th.
