Feb. 8 - Mar. 28
Roxanne Phillips: In Print opens with a reception in the museum's community gallery on Friday, Feb. 8 from 5 - 7:30 p.m.
Phillips is a printmaker. The prints in this exhibit have the theme of architecture, although loosely interpreted as "having structure," Her printed images range from geometric buildings to biomorphic clouds. Many of the images originate from photographs taken by the artist. These photos provided a "template" for Phillips as she modifies colors, crops and assembles photos to create the printed image.
The full-color pieces feature the reductive relief process wherein one matrix is used and layers are carved away each time a new color is added. Each print has anywhere from three to twelve layers. The black and white pieces consist of relief with pen or the Intaglio process.
Roxanne Phillips currently resides in St. Louis. She teaches printmaking at the
St. Louis Community College (Florissant Valley). Ms. Phillips received her master of fine arts in printmaking and drawing from Washington University in St. Louis. She currently serves on the board of directors for Women's Caucus for Art,
St. Louis. Recent group exhibits include Backlash SOHO20 Gallery, New York City; Intimacy ARC Gallery, Chicago; Honoring Women's Rights, National Steinbeck Center Museum, CA and Song of the Land, University of Sothern California, Los Angeles
