The Governor’s Academy is honored to feature the works of local printmaker Chris Robinson on campus this fall. Her body of work, “Ink + Pressure = Prints,” will be on display in the Remis Lobby of the Wilkie Center for the Performing Arts on The Governor’s Academy campus through October 7.
A Newburyport resident, Robinson is a printmaker who works in etching, woodcut, linocut, and silkscreen. She has worked at Chase’s Garage in Maine for the last five years— an artist studio that has served as her haven of productivity. Robinson is a graduate of the Museum of Fine Arts and obtained a certificate of printmaking from Montserrat College of Art and Design. She takes inspiration from everyday items in her house and things seen while walking her dog. Her current body of prints work to explain the mundane.
The opening reception was held on Friday, September 23, 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the Remis Lobby, which is open to the public. All are welcome to experience “Ink + Pressure = Prints” from now through October 7.
