Maria’s reductive linocut print, Nostalgic, has been selected as one of 79 pieces in the 2018 Pacific States North American Print Biennial, organized by the University of Hawai’i at Hilo and juried by Washington DC based artist and founder of Pyramid Atlantic, Helen Frederick. The PSBN was first organized in 1982, and the 2018 exhibition will be open from 2 November to 28 December.
Nostalgic is a reductive linocut printed as two limited editions, one on Shoji rice paper (three prints) and one on Fabriano rag paper (two prints), in May 2018. It is part of the Cells, Souls and Personalities series, exploring what personality traits may look like on a cellular level.
As part of her exhibition at St. FX University Gallery in September, Maria will also be teaching a Monotype workshop spread over 2 Wednesday evenings, 6:30 – 9:30 on September 19th and 26th. Total cost with materials is $80. Please contact Kate Georgallas to register for the class at email@example.com or 902-863-0151 and 902-872-0813
Maria’s Cells, Souls and Personalities body of work will be on exhibition at St. FX University Gallery from September 5th until October 7th. The opening reception is September 5th at 6pm immediately followed by the artist talk at 7pm.
This exhibition includes 50+ hand carved limited edition linocut prints on Japanese paper as well as several prints on fabric, embellished with embroidery. Maria’s Cells, Souls and Personalities Exhibition plays with the question: What if we could view our personality traits and emotions under the microscope in cellular form?
The exhibition can be viewed Tuesday – Friday noon until 6pm at the Gallery.
A few of Maria’s prints are part of this exhibition.

Upon popular demand Maria is offering two one day Monotype workshops in May 2018. Both workshops focus on Monotype printmaking but participants will be experimenting with different materials in each. Now that spring is finally here it will be fun to play with found plant material and experiment with the image making potential of foliage, flowers, leaves, moss, bark, etc.
The second workshop is going to focus on using textiles, and fibre textures, fabric and yarn scraps to create unusual textures and use this method as a tool to create one of a kind imagery. Both workshops are ideal for people who are sensitive to chemicals and smells as no solvents will be used and the inks are the less toxic Akua inks. Clean up will be with a dish soap and water mixture.
There are only 5 seats in each workshop, registration ahead of time is required.
Please contact Maria at firstname.lastname@example.org or 902-719-5007 to register for one or both workshops.
