June 10, 2017 — “ink stains and wood dust”

The Siskiyou Arts Museum’s gallery will host the works of Melinda Whipple Plank and Alice Porembski for the exhibit, “ink stains and wood dust”, with an opening reception Saturday, June 10, from 5 to 7pm.  Guests will enjoy refreshments and live acoustic music, with a wine bar by donation available.

Alice sculpts in wood and Melinda creates woodblock prints.

Melinda has recently received acclaim both regionally and internationally, most notably by her

inclusion in the 2014 and 2015 “Birds in Art” shows at the Leigh Yawkey Museum in Wisconsin and residencies at Lassen Volcanic National Park in 2016 and Glacier National Park in 2014.

Melinda’s artist statement: 

Plank-Image3“When I discovered printmaking. I was elated… finally, a medium that took my meticulous drawings and transformed them into something earthier and more evocative than I had the wisdom to do myself. This show contains prints from both of my National Park residencies as well as my most recent work. It celebrates the existence of open spaces and biodiversity.”

Alice Porembski has designed and built original contemporary furniture since 1978. She is trained in traditional methods and feels the challenge of modern fine woodworking is to bring ordinary craftsmanship and familiar forms into a new light.

In this exhibit, she shares a group of small boxes, exploring the painted, carved, turned, tapered, scratched wooden surface and shape, and shares: “For me, making boxes can punctuate larger commissions and provide small scale design explorations to further inspire my furniture making.  Enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed making them.”
