Art Reception for De
Art Reception for Deborah Sacks, Printmaker
Canton Public Library

Thursday, May 23, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Deborah Sacks has been an art student, artist and art teacher all of her adult life.

She completed a B.F.A from Rhode Island School of Design, an M.A. from Towson State University and an M.A.L.S. from Wesleyan University.  Coursework and workshops at Trinity College and Hartford Art School provided further training.

Having much experience with diverse media and materials, Deborah came to concentrate primarily on printmaking.   Her current work builds upon years of intaglio and relief printing from metal, wood and linoleum plates.  Switching to more environmentally friendly techniques, she uses solar plates and water base inks to produce results comparable to acid etching.  Deborah also combines her original paintings, drawings, etchings and photographs within a digital print.  The prints are on archival paper to which she often applies further enhancement with pastel or paint.

Deborah divides her time between Avon, Connecticut and her second residence in Chelsea,Vermont.  She has retired from a long career teaching art in Connecticut public schools. She gives private lessons to junior high and high school student and to adults.

Her award-winning prints have appeared in juried exhibitions at: Gallery on the Green, Canton; Farmington Valley Art Center, Avon, CT; Slater Museum at the Norwich Free Academy, Norwich, CT; West Hartford Art LeagueNew Hampshire Institute of Art, Manchester, NH,Wesleyan Potters, Middletown, CT, Loading Dock Gallery, Lowell, MA,  and the 6th Biennial International Exhibition, Center for Contemporary Printmaking, Norwalk, CT.
