Linn Exhibit to Be up Through April

 
By Henry Bryant
Printmaker Katherine Linn’s prints of Atlanta’s urban landscape will be on display in the East Atlanta Library meeting room on the Gallery Wall through the end of this month. All of these works are linocuts printed by hand from linoleum blocks. They are all original prints.
With linoprints, the linoleum block is first carved from a drawing of interest to the artist. In this case, Ms. Linn is attracted to older buildings and street scenes, some of which you might recognize from our neighborhood. After the carving is finished, the block is inked using a brayer, a kind of roller. The block with a piece of paper covering it is then put through a large press, forcing the ink into and onto the paper. Ms. Linn’s images are mostly in stark black and white, which seems to suggest that the landmarks she depicts are elements of the past that are rapidly disappearing from the city.
Ms Linn says, “Often it feels as if I am making a visual record of my own memories. Upon seeing my work, people often tell me their own stories of time spent in these places. It is rewarding to me that my images can spark that response in others.”
Ms. Linn grew up in Atlanta and has lived in East Atlanta for a number of years. She has shown at galleries and festivals across the south and around metro Atlanta. The works can be seen at the East Atlanta Library during library hours at 400 Flat Shoals Avenue in the East Atlanta Village. Ask at the circulation desk for access to the meeting room.
