You can see more from Mari on her website.
Artist 5 - Nanette Wallace
Nanette’s project is prints made by combining a woodblock carving with painterly monotype printing techniques. The pieces are 9 inches tall by 12 inches wide and will feature gestural, silhouetted figures over atmospheric backgrounds.

Artist 6 - Karen Wippich
Karen’s project is graphic, expressionist acrylic paintings with figures inhabiting and blending into abstract environments, their bodies breaking into geometric shapes and incised by lines. Each piece is 10 inches tall and 8 inches wide.
