Artist Statement

Garland, Ketchum, and Merritt

The Creation of this Print
This unique hand-pulled print is the result of a collaboration of New Hampshire printmakers: Anne Garland, Wendy Ketchum, and Peggy Merritt. Each artist created three original prints, then handed them off to the next artist to add her own imprints, who in turn passed them on to the third artist to complete the final images. To represent the diversity of techniques in the printmaking medium, the group agreed to use a different method on each successive “generation” of prints. The images produced by this collaboration are single cohesive works of art that contain the unique signature of each individual artist.
