The Chesterton Art Center will host a solo show by artist Stephanie Samaitis Carnell next month.
The art center at 115 S. Broadway in downtown Chesterton will exhibit “Transition” from July 2 through July 28.
“For decades, Carnell has been a committed printmaker producing works in traditional techniques such as etching, drypoint, and aquatint, but also the contemporary process of solarplate etching. Combining various techniques and fusing photography, drawing, digital processes, and printing surfaces, Carnell embraced experimentation and unanticipated results that inspired her,” Marketing Director Scott Saporiti said.
The exhibition showcases both her traditional printmaking work and her new digital medium, a transition in her artistic practice.
“In seeking new artmaking methods, she became interested in digital art and discovered ways to incorporate digital processes into her artistic practice,” she said. “Her exploration of fractal art, using calculated fractal patterns to create images, opened new doors and freedom for Carnell to play with color and presentation.”
