Andy Farkas Gallery Talk and Demonstration

February 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Sunday, February 11th, Momentum Gallery, in downtown Asheville, hosts an artist talk and demonstration with beloved local printmaker, Andy Farkas. Andy will discuss his creative process followed by the specific process of woodcut printmaking in the Japanese style of moku hanga, beginning with his carving technique and followed by his printing technique. He will demonstrate each (carving, then printing) and then allow anyone interested to create their own print, under his guidance! A 2017 documentary on Andy will also be shown. This opportunity to meet the artist and learn more about his work takes place at Momentum Gallery, 24 N Lexington Avenue, Sunday, February 11th, from 2-4pm. This event is free and open to all ages and abilities.

Continuing through February 24th, an exhibition of Andy Farkas’ magical work occupies Momentum’s Feature Gallery. His wood engravings and moku hanga (Japanese watercolor woodcut) prints consistently delight young and old with their narrative depictions of personified animals combined with poignant original sayings in handset letterpress type. Come see a selection of Andy’s recent works including the newest print, “Where I Go.”
