Visit The Brinton Museum for an Artist’s Reception with Ginnie Madsen: Saturday, May 4 from 2-4pm
“Most of my imagery starts with first-hand observations of the world around me. The pieces in this show were created by carving into a linoleum plate to create shapes and texture areas and results in a simplified or abstracted image. Each color is created by carving and printing additional layers. I use a printing process that results in a limited, hand-printed edition, usually between 8 and 12 prints.
I grew up in Chicago, moved to the West in the ’70s. I raised a family in Laramie, have an MFA from the University of Wyoming and had the opportunity to teach drawing, sculpture and printmaking classes at UW for about 10 years. It was in teaching printmaking that I became interested in that process which is now my primary art medium.”
