ARTISTS IN THE GALLERY Sunday, July 23, 2-4pm MARY TEICHMAN, Holyoke, MA Color Etching Mary Teichman has been making prints since 1975. Her gallery talk will include slides and print samples describing her process. In her words, "My multi-plate color etchings are triggered by things I observe: a color or texture, a slant of light--especially those that evoke memories. I am fascinated by the quality of light at night, and by the shapes emerging as my eyes adjust to the darkness. My layered technique, with its possibilities for rich color and dense blacks, lends itself easily to night scenes." Join us! --more info
