except for the sound of my voice…

Nov. 7 - Jan. 30, 2016

Photogravures by Leslie A. Golomb with selections from Wielding the Knife, woodcuts by Master Chinese Printmaker, Li Kang.

Golomb’s content taps into, but isn’t blatantly about, identity or gender politics. Rather, those subjects represent the connective tissue to what she’s really interested in, which is reflecting on how women think through, navigate and express being female in the cultural climate they live in.

This show featured a special print sale event Dec. 4-6th.  The venerable Davison Gallery of Seattle, Washington offerd a selection of small prints available for purchase in the Gallery.  Prints were by some of the most distinguished contemporary printmakers worldwide.
