Exhibit - The Piermont Marsh: Printmaking by Student Artists Grades 4-9

Friday Jan 2, 2015 Saturday Jan 31, 2015

Artist's Reception, Wednesday, January 14th at 4:30 - 5:30 PM

For the fall semester, the Library hosted a special series of art classes for kids: Artists-in-Residence at the Piermont Library and Piermont Marsh. This special series was funded by a grant from the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation and taught by Alexis Starke.

Students became Artists-in-Residence, exploring the Piermont Marsh, Sparkill Creek, and Hudson River, taking photographs and sketching along the way. They then used the photographs and sketches as references for a number of printmaking projects using monotype, blockprinting, and photo-transfer. Approximately 11,000 years old, the 1000 acre Piermont Marsh is an ecologically unique component of the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve. The grant from the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation provided students with cameras, monotype gel printing plates, block printing carving tools, brayers and printing inks. The class is culminating with January's Art Exhibit at the Library.
