Artist Inspiration Summer Salon Series with Kathleen Sherin

$15 members/$25 not-yet members

Kathleen Sherin will bring a selection of her one-of-a-kind prints from the series Waterzones.  She will talk about her inspirations and decisions that lead to the evolution of her work from initial impulse to final artwork.  Her aim is to share her thoughts and working methods in the use of direct and indirect stencil transfers, layering and contrasts to artists working in the medium of watercolor. 

Kathleen Sherin began to explore printmaking as a graduate student in painting at the University of Buffalo (MFA 1985) and has evolved her unique methods of creating one-of-kind prints since that time. 

In her work Sherin uses various combinations of collage, collagraph, relief printing, drypoint, carborundum, chine collé, and monoprint techniques. She has evolved from her traditional roots in lithography and intaglio to an exclusive use of direct non-chemical-mediated methods. Working on an etching press, she approaches printmaking with the directness of a painter and an eye for contrasts of a collage artist.

Kathy’s work has been exhibited regionally and nationally.  In the past 2 years her work was featured in exhibitions in Rochester, NY (Rochester Contemporary Art Gallery) in Buffalo (Indigo Art Gallery, Pausa Art House), and in numerous regional and national group exhibitions.  Kathleen’s work has been included in Buffalo’s ECHO art fair since it inaugural exhibition in 2011 and in 2016’s most recent exhibition in NYC at the Highline Loft. A large multi-part print is in the Burchfield collection was exhibited in “Displacement – Barge Project” in the Burchfield Penney Art Gallery in 2014.

Currently Kathleen is a studio artist at Buffalo Arts Studio and creates her larger prints at the UB printshop as part of the ePIC (Experimental Print Imaging Center) program.  She lives in Buffalo’s west side with her husband Bob McCabe, a German Sheperd and 2 cats.
