Blair works in woodcut and etching, using traditional techniques.  Her interest lies with mark-making that is in tune with her material - whether it be copper or wood.  The woodcuts are typically monoprints.  Her vocabulary includes abstraction, small editions, serial presentation, simplificiation, images emergent from process.  Her most frequent subjects are weather and the landscape. The 2017 installation "Salamander Parade" included oversize etchings and is her first figurative work.  

May’s  imagery comes from her personal collection of 35mm photographs or family albums to reinterpret memories in traditional methods. Her most recent work focuses on plant and flower based incorporated imagery with a hidden theme of memory.Individuals’ lives are built through their personal experiences and associations compiled within their memories and every day life. May seeks to explore these memories through means of interpreting thoughts onto paper with printmaking techniques.
David Avery continues to exploit the constraints inherent in traditional black and white line etching in his studio in San Francisco for his own suspect purposes. His work is included in the collections of the Library of Congress, the Fogg Museum at Harvard University, the New York Public Library, the Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts, the Stanford University Library among others, and has been noted in the New York Times. Originally trained as a classical musician, he discovered etching almost by accident in a class at the local community college. After learning the basic techniques, he intently pursued his own course of discovery, developing an exceptional technique and creating a remarkable body of finely wrought miniature etchings and drypoints. Even though “black and white doesn’t sell”, he has eschewed the use of color, finding the subtleties and tonalities of black and white most capable of creating the psychological mood that allows his work to be effective.
