SOLO SHOW // OCTOBER/NOVEMBER
FIRST FRIDAY // OPENING RECEPTION // OCT 3rd 2014
We are thrilled to bring you the wicked works of Portland artist LIV RAINEY-SMITH. Specializing in the superannuated art of hand-pulled xylographic prints, her unique woodcut process incorporates a mixture of traditional and modern tools as well as a blend of European and Japanese printmaking technique. Each print is an original impression direct from the hand-carved woodblock. She draws inspiration from early woodcuts, folklore, dreams, nightmares, and esoteric traditions.
Rainey-Smith was introduced to the art of printmaking at Oregon College of Art and Craft where she received her BFA in 2008. Her work has graced the pages of volumes published by Three Hands Press, and will be appearing in the Starry Wisdom Anthology slated for release in September 2014 from PS Publishing.
Liv’s show will be up for two full months from October through the end of November, during two of our favorite holidays; Halloween and Dia de los Muertos. Opening Reception is 6-9:30pm, First Friday October 3rd.
