By  | 

MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WSAW) -- The Wood Engravers' Network Third Triennial Exhibition has traveled to Marshfield, and now the uncommon art form is being brought to light for all to experience.

This exhibit is the third juries, traveling exhibit that features 64 different engravings by 37 artists that come from all over.

"We have some from Canada, Ireland, Belgium, and of course right here in the U.S.," explained Kitty Kingston with UW-Marshfield.

Wood engraving, unlike wood carving, is a relief printmaking process where an original drawing is cut into the surface of a wood block, and then inked and printed to create a reflected image of the cut block.

The exhibit is now being featured in Gallery 450 in the Helen C. Laird Fine Arts Building at UW-Marshfield/Wood County.

The gallery will be open on M-F from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and will only be on display here until March 16.

Admission is free to get in and view.

The exhibit will continue traveling through the end of 2019.
