Sophie’s Gallery’s Doggos Show
St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center (SMSC) presents Doggos, a collection of collagraph prints. The artists of Sophie’s Gallery celebrate the special bond between humans and canines in a whimsical collection of collagraph dog prints. Collagraph printing, a low-tech medium that is non-toxic was invented in the 1950s. Artists built printing–plates using recycled paper glued to a rigid support that were inked and passed through a printing press twice. Collagraphic printing is a process that is a combination of intaglio and relief printing techniques. The first pass through the press makes the background and the second pass through the press creates the foreground of the finished prints.
Ongoing until Friday, February 28, 2020
