Field Hall Gallery proudly introduced its latest exhibition, “Impressions,” on November 9th. The curated collection of diverse work from Washington-based printmakers has transformed the gallery into a vibrant tapestry. 

Curated by Lindsey Shepherd, “Impressions” brings together printmakers with unique perspectives, each contributing a distinct narrative rooted in cultural heritage and intimately intertwined with the natural world. Shepherd reflects on the exhibit, stating, “Printmaking, with its rich history and versatile techniques, serves as a perfect medium to explore the intricate threads of cultural heritage, personal narratives, and the profound connection we share with nature.”

The opening reception on November 9th was a free celebratory event, with attendees having the opportunity to engage with the featured artists and curator. The evening also featured Clallam County Poet Laureate Jaiden Dokken, who shared an original ekphrastic poem inspired by the artwork within the exhibit. Featured artists, in turn, offered personal insights into their printmaking process.
