Exploring the Midwest through Woodblock Printmaking
by Alfred Stark
March 4–May 23
Artist reception: Sunday, April 2, 1–3 p.m.
Glacial Park—Lost Valley Visitor Center
Through woodblock printmaking Stark is able to document his love of nature and share it with anyone who might be interested, hoping that they, too, will want to spend more time outdoors. Woodblock printing allows this artist to pare down the natural world to what he finds essentially beautiful about it.
