This week artist/printmaker Deborah Guertz will have a large work on the big wall.  Currently an image is unavailable but here is a sample of her work so please stop in the gallery and see her intricate etchings and monotypes.

Geurtze's work reflect her deep connection with nature, a force that directs both her life and her art. In describing her work, the artist notes, "Wilderness – its patterns and complexity – are a continual source of inspiration. My panoramas explore the ever changing natural world and give expression to themes of passage –from dark to light, along a country road, from man-made to overgrown, chaotic splendor."

She attended Rhode Island School of Design and studied printmaking with Robert Bero at the State University College of Potsdam, N.Y.  After teaching abroad at the American school of Tangier, Morocco, and at Vail (Co.) Mountain School, Guertze returned to upstate New York, and established her studio in an historic 1838 Greek revival "mansion", where she worked for 25 years. In 2011 she moved to Rocky Neck.

Guertze's work on the Big Art Wall will be up from July 19th until August 1st.
