Hand-Carved Woodcut Prints at UU Gallery – Door County Pulse

Printmaker and former UW-Green Bay Prof. Chris Style is the featured artist in Stories and Inspirations, the August exhibit at the UU Gallery in north Ephraim. It features a selection of prints from her “Stories from the Heart” woodcut series and large-scale prints created for steamroller print events. Some works that inspire Style will also be shown alongside her work, including Indian miniature paintings, a Chitraker hand-painted scroll from India and photographs of India’s Nek Chand Rock Garden.

After teaching at UW-Green Bay for 30 years, Style retired this year and is now a professor emerita of art and design who lives and maintains a printmaking studio in Green Bay.

Style highlights hand-carved woodcuts in this exhibit. Images designed for carving woodcuts must be reduced to black and white and, therefore, often have a graphic quality. She has been involved in numerous steamroller printmaking events, including those at Ephraim’s Hardy Gallery. The UU Gallery is free and open to the public.

“Jim is a regular on campus, even in his retirement,” said Marinette Campus CEO, Cindy Bailey.   “He has sculpture art throughout the campus and the Marinette community. He is a model train enthusiast who often hold demonstrations at local libraries. He is the presiding officer of the Menominee Area Arts Council, a very active public arts group. He has four children, all of whom attended our campus.”

Growing public art display makes its way across Green Bay

“Americans for the Arts’ lists art as the fourth largest driver of tourism and influences decisions tourists make when travel planning. More murals like this one are catching people’s eye in Green Bay. As the Green Bay Public Arts Commission continues to gain traction, so do displays of public art in the community. The ‘DREAM’ mural is the latest one to pop up in the Broadway district.”

“I think it adds life, anytime you’ve got a wall I see that as a canvas. I want to fill it with energy and line and shape,” said UW-Green Bay alumnus Beau Thomas ’16, the mural artist. See more via, Growing public art display makes its way across Green Bay.
