THIS EVENT IS OVER
The Corner Gallery holds an opening reception for Layers of Space, an exhibition of work by artist Margot Voorhies Thompson in a variety of media all informed by printmaking. Thompson will also speak about her work at the opening.
The pieces for this show have been selected with the idea of putting together work in various media that was informed by the act of printmaking—the process of making plates, blocks and monotypes, etc. Thompson’s knowledge of various printmaking methods has influenced her understanding of space and imagery. The techniques of layering, juxtapositions, erasures, additions and subtractions, all part of a printmaker’s process, have strongly effected her use and choice of tools and surfaces in her multi-disciplinary practice.
Margot Voorhies Thompson is a painter, printmaker, designer and calligrapher who creates studio work as well as public art projects. She was an Eliot scholar at Reed College and also studied at PNCA, Lewis and Clark College and the Hochschule Fur Kunsterlische in Linz, Austria. She is represented by the Laura Russo Gallery. Her public commissions include projects at the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, the Woodstock Public Library, Portland State University and the State of Oregon Library. She is currently completing a commission for the Oregon State Hospital in Salem.
