Please join us Wednesday, September 19th from 3:30 to 4:30pm for an informal gallery talk and Q & A by our current exhibiting artists, Myron Rubenstein and Barbara Pagh.
Myron Rubenstein, Heads Up, Intaglio, 2010
Myron previously worked as a graphic designer, and created art for years with traditional media, with a focus on canvas, oil and mixed media. Over the last few years he has embraced his digital skills, searching for the convergence of traditional painting, photography and the virtual world of computing. Incorporating today’s technology with traditional painting on canvas has led to a very personal form of computer generated art. He has most recently shown in the Candita Clayton Gallery in Pawtucket, RI. Rubenstein was awarded a 2012 RISCA project grant for his intaglio prints, which will be showcased in this exhibition.

Printmaking allows Pagh to experiment with the multiple in different ways by printing different colors and varying the combinations of images. Pagh rarely makes an edition, except for group portfolios, so each print is unique. She usually starts her process with making paper. Pagh works with abaca and makes sheets of various sizes. The photographs are done on site and then altered in Photoshop. From those prints she makes negatives and exposes them on a light sensitive aluminum lithographic plate. The plates are saved and often re-used in different ways. Pagh also makes collages with the extra printed elements.
