Block prints to be featured this month at Harbor Art Gallery

PORT ANGELES — Harbor Art Gallery will feature the work of artist Nathan Shields of Port Angeles throughout the month of October.

The gallery, at 114 N. Laurel St. in Port Angeles, is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Shields will showcase two new series of block prints, titled Inky Caps and Jitterbugs.

“Mushrooms, skulls and enormous dancing bugs … there’s really something for everyone,” Shields said.

Known as reduction prints, these images are carved into a linoleum block a little at a time, with successive layers of ink in different colors printed onto paper.

“It’s kind of a time-consuming process; the pieces for this show have been in the works since February,” Shields said.

The reduction process ensures that only a limited edition of original prints exist.

Shields has had a lifelong love of art making. He currently teaches art to high school students at Crescent School in Joyce, along with math and computer science.

Harbor Art Gallery also showcases work by local artists Bob Stokes, Cindy Elstrom, Carolyn Guske, Robert Amaral, Garret DeLaBarre, Terri Enck, Katie Graham, Tammy Hall, Susan Kantowitz, Ruth Kaspin, Nancy McFaul, Gail McLain, Roger Mosley, Eric Neurath, Miranda Petruska, Randy and Sallie Radock, Jodi Riverstone, Nathan Shields, Lance and Haley Snider, Eileen Webb, Kevin Willson and Andrèa Woods.
