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.
Solo Exhibition Dates: October 31 – November 28, 2015
Opening Reception: November 5, 6:30 – 9:00pm

District at the beginning of the opening reception.
Accompanying the exhibition, I will host a workshop at the BLCA guiding participants through the process of creating and printing collagraph plates made with invasive plants.
Collagraph Workshop: November 11 & 18, 10:00am – 1:00pm
Instructor: Emily Gray Koehler
