Please join us for an artist lecture with Rebecca Gilbert, who will discuss the works in our current exhibition wonder, as well as earlier projects. Gilbert’s works come out of her deep commitment to traditional print processes including wood engraving and complex, multiple-layered reduction woodcuts, and her poetic response to the landscape.
“I have been using dirt, water, sticks, coins and gold as imagery in my work to symbolize that which we impulsively crave, seek out and hold valuable.” – Rebecca Gilbert
