sizedD.-Worth_installation-April 21, 2006 – May 31, 2006

Diane Kazar Worth’s current work consists of relief collagraphs printed on silk as well as on paper. Her imagery is restrained, simple, and abstract and the long narrow shapes reflect a Japanese influence in format as well as in style. These images are meant to allow the viewer a quiet space for reflection, remaining open enough for various thoughts to emerge.

Ms. Worth has been a printmaker for more than 20 years and has studied and worked at various schools and printshops including Greenfield Community College, the Museum School, Tokugenji Press in Kyoto, Japan and Zea Mays Printmaking. Her work has been exhibited in the United States, China, and Japan. She works in a variety of print mediums including drypoint, aquatint, collagraph and monoprint.

In a concurrent exhibit in the gallery, Ruth Ginsberg-Place and Bobette McCarthy show recent woodcuts, alongside reduction linocuts by Susan Jaworski-Stranc and mixed media relief prints by Wendy Ketchum.
