Karen QuintElevations

Made with an impression of ink and pressure on paper, the images in this exhibition are Karen’s suggestion of the hills and valleys of Eastern Washington.

Karen received a BFA from the University of New Mexico and an MFA from Denver University in drawing and printmaking (lithography.) In 1975 with a small group, she helped develop a printmaking studio in Seattle for Bavarian stone lithography, but found working in art galleries and selling art more interesting.

It was not until recently that she returned to printmaking.  In 2008, with Robert and Fay Jones and Kerry Quint, she helped build out Goathead Press studio in Tieton, Washington. Together with visiting artists and other members, they have had several exhibitions, published prints and a portfolio, held workshops and created collaborations such as the one in the Windows Alive Project in Yakima.

Since coming to Eastern Washington for the last ten years, Karen’s inspiration is the landscape she has grown to love. Her prints have been included in shows in Yakima, Walla Walla, the Tacoma Art Museum and Gallery One in Ellensburg.

Goathead Press has been actively involved in the community and continues to hold workshops for adults and children.
