The Trespasser’s Garden is a series of reduction woodcuts and collagraphs created by Minnesota-based printmaker Emily Gray Koehler exploring the ecology of invasive plants and concerns associated with their introduction into the Midwestern environment.  This blog will investigate her artistic process as she develops these works for an exhibition in November 2015 at Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts in Fridley, Minnesota.
