Michigan Mark-making Exhibition Opening | Featuring Helen Gotlib & Dylan Strzynski

Venue: J. Petter Galleries
161 N. Blue Star Highway Douglas, MI 49406

Join us for a meet & greet and demonstration with artist Dylan Strzynski and printmaker Helen Gotlib. Strzynski is a Michigan artist whose mixed media work combines drawing, painting, and influence from his background in printmaking. He is inspired by the woody marine landscape of the north where he grew up and the area surrounding his home in rural western Washtenaw County. Focusing on landscape and vernacular architecture, his work addresses concerns about the environment and poverty by telling stories characterized by mystery and subtle humor. A lifetime interest in art led Helen to study at the University of Michigan's School of Art & Design where she divided her time between printmaking and scientific illustration. This led her to develop a process-oriented drawing style characterized by extreme detail. Most recently, Gotlib is immersed in an extensive exploration of botanicals. By following the life cycle of flora, but focusing particularly on dried, dead flowers she has managed to create images of unexpected beauty and power.
