Port Stanley News RSS Feed  Arts And Entertainment Artist Amanda Caldwell Wins First

by Robin Baratta
Artist Amanda Caldwell Wins First

St Thomas elementary school teacher Amanda Caldwell has recently earned a first at the prestigious Button Factory Arts Press Show in Waterloo for her art piece Solitude.

Working from a single linoleum block she carves away areas in a reductive technique called relief printing.

For each colour a new layer is removed and a trip to the printing press is made where specialized inks are applied and the block is pressed to paper transferring the image. On the whole, the process is very complicated, time consuming, challenging and misunderstood, with each work of art taking up to four months to create. Amanda usually pulls no more than 6 prints from a block, each different from its sisters, making each print an original in it's own right.

The print that earned her this award, Solitude, is currently on display at the Art Emporium at 177 Main Sreet in Port Stanley, where she will be available to speak about her process and motivation on Aug 19th and Aug 28th, 2015 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Free parking and refreshments are available.
