Current Exhibit: As I See It: Art by Hope Salmanoff
August 30 through October 29
Hope was born and raised in the Chicago area and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Illinois, at Urbana-Champaign. After working many years as a graphic artist and then as a C.P.A., she quit the workforce in 2008 and returned to her artistic aspirations. After studying drawing and painting at the Evanston Art Center for two years, Hope then began studying printmaking at the North Shore Art League in Winnetka.
Original etchings are my favorite method of expression. Each print involves the controlled erosion of a zinc plate. The etched plate is inked by hand and printed on paper, with the use of heavy pressure from a roller press. Each print starts as a line drawing and then I see where it takes me. I will add a tonal quality or color until the print tells me that I am done.
Meet Hope in person at her Art Gallery Exhibit on October 3, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. in Village Hall.
