Raleigh art gallery, Lee Hansley Gallery presents it's last exhibit at it's present location. Claude Howell and his printmaker make for a must see North Carolina art exhibit. artGuide Magazine is excited to present this Raleigh art exhibit to you!
Claude Howell and his printmaker, Carson Tredgett of Charlotte, are reunited this month in an exhibition at Lee Hansley Gallery. It is the last exhibition in the Glenwood South space. The gallery is moving in the fall to 1053 East Whitaker Mill Road.
Claude and Carson began their collaborative venture in 1978 and produced a total of ten serigraphs together. The images were all based on Howell paintings. Producing the serigraphs required close collaboration between artist and printer. Each print has between 38-46 colors, meaning a silkscreen film was made for each color. A single pass of ink was made per color as it was transferred to paper. Howell was allowed final say before prints could be signed and released for sale. Tredgett’s set of master prints are numbered 1/1 printer’s proof. Tredgett is a native of Leicester, England. At age 16 he went to work for a master printer and by age 20 he was shop manager at a major commercial printing house. He moved to Charlotte in 1977 and set up his own business in 1979 which he ran for 35 years. Tredgett will discuss his relationship with Howell and explain the printing process at a gallery talk on Sept. 11 at 3 p.m.
