Workshop: Solar Plate Etching
Feb 9 & 10 – Fri & Sat 10:00-5:00

Solar plate etching is a method of reproducing a drawing or image (including photo positive) onto a plate, using the sun. The plate is then inked and run with paper through an intaglio press. Select to sign up

Suzy Schultz is an award-winning artist who works in the mediums of watercolor, oil, intaglio and graphite. Schultz has little formal art training, but was exposed to art at an early age through her mother, who is a painter. She graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Mathematics Education and taught high school for 4 1/2 years. Taking a leave of absence, she spent a year overseas in Poland. On returning, she did some part-time graphic design work for a local missions agency, and was eventually hired to help with their publications. There she was mentored and nurtured in her artistic talent, and encouraged to paint for illustrations used in the magazine. When her mentor and boss left to go on the mission field six years later, she was told she needed to leave her job and paint full time, which she did.

She has painted full-time since 1995, and has won many awards for her work. Her work has been featured in American Art Collector, Drawing, and Watercolor Magic magazines. She has also had work published in art books.

Suzy lives, works and teaches life drawing in Atlanta, Georgia.

Mollie Doctrow: Carving A Path

Dec 12-Jan 5, Searle Gallery
Opening Reception Dec 14, 5:00-7:00pm

Doctrow_Roberts_Lake_Strand_woodcut_14x18 copy

Slogging through swamps, wading through weeds and getting off the beaten path, Doctrow sketches native habitats and makes environmental woodcuts. These printed woodcuts are portraits of plants and plant communities, some endemic, rare and endangered.

About the Art

This art reflects Doctrow’s captivation with swampy jungles, exotic plants and diverse habitats. A dominant theme is the drama of the moment, a personal interaction with a particular place.

Through this artwork I connect to the natural world and hope to bring attention to these fragile environments.

Her recent work has focused on Central and South Florida, Big Cypress and the Everglades. The work is influenced by the Western landscape art tradition, representing natural forms accurately and expressively, as well as Oriental art. Working mostly in black and white, Doctrow explores complex forms and aims to simplify composition. Her artistic goal is to achieve a balance between black and white areas, carved and uncarved areas of the woodcut block, positive and negative.

She begins with field sketches of natural places, transfers them to woodblocks and then completes the final image with carving. “The carving demands spontaneity, letting go, and following the movement or feeling for the form.” The carved marks become visual shorthand – a way of simplifying complex images, expressing rhythm, texture, form and space.

The carved blocks are printed with water-based ink on Japanese kozo paper, each print hand-pulled in the artist’s studio using an etching press.

MollieDoctrow-photo by Dustin AngellAbout the Artist

Doctrow is Curator Emerita at South Florida State College Museum of Florida Art & Culture in Avon Park, Florida. Her work has been featured in many solo and group exhibitions, and she has lectured widely and conducts workshops on woodcut art. Doctrow has held art residencies at Big Cypress National Preserve, Everglades National Park and Archbold Biological Station. These residencies provided access to remote and pristine areas in Florida, inspiring much of her recent work.
