June 11th Meeting with Barbara Mellin


"Prints Charming" with Barbara Mellin

Artist Barbara Mellin will discuss the tools and processes she uses to create  linocuts, etchings, mezzotints, dry points, woodblocks, monotypes and monoprints  - and will share with us many examples of her work.

Barbara earned a Graduate Degree in Art History from Harvard University. She has been an instructor in printing, drawing, and Asian brush painting in both Massachusetts and North Carolina, and has also been a gallery curator, an arts lecturer, and an award-winning poet and essayist. 

An avid traveler, Barbara has walked the Great Wall of China, ridden a camel in Egypt, marveled at the Parthenon and the Pantheon, climbed Machu Picchu, and stood in awe of Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

Come join us to learn about the creative world of printmaking!

Social time begins at 6:30, followed by the meeting at 7:00
