The Woodstock School of Art (WSA) has chosen artist Marie Cole to create the 2022 Annual Print. Winter on the Farm is a carved woodblock relief print. The limited edition of 85 prints follows a long tradition of artist printmakers who have been selected to create a new print for its annual fund raiser. The print will be given to contributors of $125 or more to the nonprofit school.
“Barns and farms in American art are iconic images. Many of the farms have disappeared, but the barns remain, lone sentinels of what was. I’ve drawn, painted and printed these images for years, as part of the landscape. But the beautiful barns that were built in the past are in danger of vanishing (from the landscape). There may be hope for small farms in the future with the advent of organic farming, but the barns will not be the same. They don’t build them like they used to.”
Marie Cole graduated from Vassar College and taught at Dutchess Community College for several years. Her paintings are in corporate and private collections from coast to coast. Marie has painted for many years. Her interest in printmaking was sparked by two semesters of study at Vassar College in the late 1980’s. It was rekindled several years ago at the Woodstock School of Art when a chance to study with Kate McGloughlin on a regular basis came about. Marie states, “Printmaking is a challenging medium and has many different techniques, whether it be woodblock, etching, or monotypes. It has been amazing to explore so many different aspects of the medium and enjoy the camaraderie of the printmaking studio at WSA”.
Her work can be found at several local galleries in the area. She has been a member of the Tivoli Artists Gallery for almost 30 years and is currently on the Board of Directors. Her studio is in Germantown in a renovated warehouse by the Hudson River.
