The Dublin Community Center will feature the minimalist textural mixed-media work of Peterborough artist Soosen Dunholter during June. Dunholter’s collagraphic monoprints have been exhibited throughout New England and have won numerous awards, including the 2016 Ruth and James Ewing Award given to a professional artist in recognition of art excellence.

Of her current series, Dunholter writes: “You see a fanciful collection of work developed using recycled telephone wire left over from a public art project. After forming the telephone wire into playful clothes lines. I emboss the form with my etching press. I then developed a method of adding patina to the surface of paper using a burnishing technique. I then work back onto the piece using oil paint and snippets from my antique paper collection, followed by a top layer of cold wax. Creating my own hand-printed paper allows me to invent a unique color palette that, when blended with snippets from my antique paper collection, permits me to have more control over the look of my final piece thus achieving a harmonious, modernistic, contemporary result.”

An opening artist reception will be on June 1 from 5 to 7 p.m. Admission is free and refreshments will be served. For more information call 563-8080 or email info@dublincommunitycenter.org.
