'Flock and Hills' Collagraph Print, Kathleen Buchanan
We are excited to announce the opening reception for the new collagraph prints of Rockport artist Kathleen Buchanan. Her work gracefully and powerfully evokes the spirit of the Maine landscape - our rugged coastline, gentle farmlands and the birds and animals that inhabit such places. In addition to being an accomplished artist, Buchanan was trained as a wildlife biologist and brings the experience and insights of scientific observation to her artistic engagement with the world around her.

Her process creates collages of various materials and media on flat printing plates, one for each color or suite of colors in the print. The collages are then inked and printed in turn using an etching press to create an image that is rich in subtle colors and textured layers.

Buchanan says of her work, “I am constantly inspired by the area where I live - the coast of Maine always reinvents itself with ever-changing ocean and sky, and seasons which each have grace and character all their own.”

For a sneak peek at the work and more info about Kathleen Buchanan and other artists please visit us on Facebook at the Green Lion Gallery.

Opening reception will be on Friday May 19, from 5-7pm at the Green Lion, 104 Front Street in Bath. The reception is on the third Friday of May, following the schedule of the summer’s Bath Art Walks. As always, there will be light refreshments, live music and an opportunity to meet the artist.
