DIAA’s April Artist-in-Residence is ADELL DONAGHUE. Adell has been making art for about 50 years in a variety of mediums including painting (oil, gouache and watercolor), and printmaking (etching, lithography, woodcut, linoleum, mono print, monotype, mixed media/collage). She has collaborated with other artists and authors to create handmade books and broadsides.
Like other artists in our area, Adell’s work is heavily influenced by Maine’s beautiful landscape. During her residency at the DIAA Gallery, Adell will create a series of woodblock prints that explore the regional architecture and landscape of Deer Isle, Maine.
Please stop in to visit and chat with Adell during her residency, starting April 4, Tuesdays – Saturdays, from 1:30 – 4 PM.
Adell will offer a Printmaking Demonstration & Workshop on Saturday, April 29, from noon – 2 pm. Attendees will make tiny prints on a mini etching press and will also make a large format print from a woodblock using traditional Japanese hand tools. The workshop is limited to ten people, and materials will be provided. Like other workshops presented by DIAA members during the winter season, this event will be free for the public. Please contact Adell at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. Participants should wear a work shirt or bring an apron, as printmaking can be messy!
The DIAA Gallery is located at 15 Main Street in Deer Isle Village. www.deerisleartists.com (207) 598-9656
