Karen Hackenberg

Artist featured at Studium Generale

PORT ANGELES — Artist Karen Hackenberg, whose solo exhibition is featured in Peninsula College’s PUD, will be the featured speaker at the free Studium Generale presentation on Thursday.

Hackenberg, whose show, “EcoArt,” will be on display through March, will speak at the Little Theater on the college’s Port Angeles campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., at 12:35 p.m.

Hackenberg received her BFA in painting from Rhode Island School of Design, moved west to live for a decade and a half in San Francisco, and now lives and works near Port Townsend.

The tenuous boundary between living nature and human encroachment is the primary unifying theme in Hackenberg’s artwork.

In her new Sea Tangle Suite of drawings, she expands on environmental themes by working from direct observation on the beach, drawing freehand directly onto the screen of an iPad Pro with a digital Apple Pencil, using a technique similar to that of David Hockney in his iPad landscape drawings.

In both cases, the process of creating these images resembles that of traditional printmaker’s hand- pulled prints, where there is no other original besides the print.

The PUB Gallery of Art is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
