Maureen Steuart – Darwin the Naturalist
Drawings and Printmaking
June 3–26, 2011
Opening reception Friday June 3, 7-9:30pm
Maureen Steuart inspired by the writings of Charles Darwin presents us with “Darwin the Naturalist,” a series of themed etchings.
“I read my Darwin books in the basement of the Dundas Valley School of Art, where I worked as the print space technician. I’d sit on my very old green twirly office chair and I’d read as aquarium-like light filtered through the dense windows. I’d pick up an etching tool and draw one of Darwin’s finds onto a zinc plate.”
