Printmaking pieces from five regional artists are on display at the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center through Nov. 21.

From fish prints to woodcuts, this show is an excellent representation of the numerous forms that the printmaking art form can take. Many of the pieces are available for purchase (often both framed and unframed) and most of the artists have pieces in the gift store.

The show features work from:

Dawn Rossbach

Rossbach lives and teaches art to high schoolers in Menahga. She was featured in a gallery show at the Cultural Center in August 2015 for her illustrations in the children's book, The Cookie Garden.

Troy Becker

Becker is a native of New York Mills. After an affinity for drawing, comics and art, he graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead with a B.A. in Art and Communications. After a few stints in Minneapolis, Connecticut and Wisconsin, he found himself back in the Fargo-Moorhead area. He is currently an illustrator and graphic artist for The Forum.

He also finds time for a few choice freelance assignments. The art continues in his home studio where he enjoys creating screen prints, comics and graphic novels (under the Light Studio label). He lives near downtown Fargo with his lovely wife and three busy children.

Shirlee Aho Daulton

Daulton lives on Rush Lake and is the proprietor of The Art House during the spring and summer months. She has been a long-time featured artist in the gallery gift store, where a broad representation of her artwork is available for sale.

Perala is also a New York Mills native, now residing in North Dakota.

Her handmade books, Finnish greeting cards and prints are available for purchase in the gift store.

Nikki Thompson

Thompson is from Perham and is a first-generation printer, papermaker and binder, re-purposing part of the family farmstead as a studio space. After taking classes in the aforementioned areas and apprenticing as a printer's devil for two years, her business, Barn Owl Press, was born, thanks to equipment donations, help, and advice from numerous printers and family. Her work draws from the land she has access to and utilizes clean and simple design.
