Artist: Benjamin Calvert
Benjamin Calvert carves his art into woodblocks and then prints the images onto paper. Intrigued? You will get to witness this in action at our events! Ben will be carving before and during the concert and then printing after the music is done so you can see his art form as it happens! From Benjamin, "Pulling that first print off the block is pure joy. The excitement multiplies when there are multiple blocks for each color involved. Each successive color is a layer that informs the mystery and appeal of the final image. I take much pleasure in hearing interpretations of my work from others. I enjoy creating images that are at once familiar, yet open to interpretation. The more diverse the comments, the more effective I believe my work to be.”
