“My art is both idealistic and romantic, traveling the trajectory of my personal experience and perspective. My prints are conceived as a soul sanctuary where viewers can quietly contemplate the pulse and poetry of nature~ transformational patterns within land, water, and sky. A colorful story unfolds within the wake of relief and etched lines that move in an arc of rhythmic energy.” – James Hubbard, Indiana print artist
James is one of the 67th St. Printmakers participating in November’s exhibit at the Raymond James Stutz Art Gallery, “Pastiche, a Melody of Printmakers”. He is a printmaking instructor and exhibition gallerist at Sugar Creek Art Center in Thorntown, Indiana, and an artist-in-residence at Robin Run Village, Indianapolis where he works with a group of talented senior residents. He participates in many local, regional and national juried exhibitions and works as a freelance curator.
His art education has been a life-long passion. As a child, he was always experimenting with unconventional materials. Today his playfulness is a bit more focused and refined. Since retiring as an elementary art teacher in June 2008, James has concentrated on creating a portfolio of original intaglio and relief limited edition art prints. Some of his work will be on display during “Pastiche”, opening Friday, Nov. 4.
