Location: Evergreen Museum & Library (Reading Room)
Cost: Included with paid museum admission and on view as part of the guided tour.
Baltimore printmaker and performing artist Lorraine Imwold has spent the last two years studying Evergreen, not only learning its history, but also developing a relationship with and appreciation for its architecture and surrounding landscape. Though “plein air” is a term more often assigned to painters who work in nature, Imwold felt a driving desire to apply such to the art of printmaking. Sitting at a table that moved about the grounds of the museum, she created a series of images inspired by the way Evergreen “introduced itself…upon each new visit.” Imwold explored Evergreen during different seasons and various times of day, creating an intimate visual account of the artist in symbolic dialogue with sense of place.
