THE DALLES — The second exhibit of 2024 at The Dalles Art Center (TDAC) is “Rose Szapszewicz: Embracing Unpredictability,” an exquisite collection of monotype prints by the experienced and insightful Columbia Gorge Area artist. The exhibit opens March 14 with a reception at 5 p.m., and runs through April 11. The beauty of the Columbia River Gorge was like a siren for Szapszewicz. Under its influence, her work, be it monotypes or sketches of nature, is best be described as energy caught on paper. The images of the landscape she lives in is absorbed into her being and expressed in the work.The one-of-a-kind monotypes are created with large rollers moving over paint applied to a metal plate. Szapszewicz works spontaneously, adding elements from nature to the process like flora, or water and from chemistry such as alcohol that create special effects in each print. The plate is run through a press several times until she is satisfied with the result. The nature of the surprise thrills her as she sees the colors and textures emerge on their own.
