Nancy Prior’s series of etchings and photographs was created during a residency at the Sou’wester Lodge, a historic lodge and collection of vintage travel trailers in Long Beach, WA. A soft etching ground was applied to four copper plates that were thrown in the ocean at high and low tides. The series documents the process.
Nancy Prior is multidisciplinary artist who makes prints because the process allows for, and sometimes demands, waiting. Waiting for things to get wet, to dry, to soak overnight, to be etched and agitated, slows down the hectic process of trying to attach ideas to paper.
On display now at Back Matter Gallery.
ARTIST RECEPTION: Saturday, May 30, 5 to 7 pm.
