Cape Ann artist printmaker Coco Berkman creates images that delight her and hopefully others through the process of linoleum printmaking. Inspired by literature, the natural world and the free play inherent in drawing, she uses sharp japanese tools to carve images into sheets of linoleum and then prints them one color at a time over several months to complete an edition. Coco studied printmaking at several studios throughout the United States, Ireland and South Korea. A long standing member of The Boston Printmakers, her work is in the collection of The Dublin Writers Museum, The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury and in several private collections.
Please join us for a Saturday Artist talk and demonstration, where the artist will demonstrate how she prepares and carves a linoleum plate. She will also show some of her completed works, and answer questions from the audience.
