R.P. Hale - Wood Engraved Prints
January 16 - May 22, 2014 | Library
The library's spring 2014 art exhibit, "R.P. Hale - Wood Engraved Prints" by R.P Hale, features wood engravings of historic buildings and landscapes around New England.
R.P. Hale is an illustrator and fifth generation calligrapher, wood engraver and printmaker based in Concord, New Hampshire. He inherited the press, fonts of handset type and most of his engraving tools. R.P. uses a blue-black oil-based ink of 18th-century formulation for printing wood engravings, and the editions are printed on archive-grade acid-free Mohawk Superfine in either natural white or pale ivory.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information contact the library at 641-4330, or via email.

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio and now a resident of Nashua, NH, Hubley is a watercolor painter, printmaker, and photographer. Hubley’s prints and paintings use motifs from nature. Examples of her themes are an analogy of the cosmic vs. the microscopic, the contrast of the mental geography of above versus below, and a suggested juxtaposition of time & travel.
