In Catalunya, Maryland artist Lynn Sures exhibits twenty six works in her new series, “Montserrat” Catalunya is Catalonia, a region in northeast Spain. The mountain Montserrat is located there, and its imposing physical presence and cultural symbolism serve as the impetus for this new body of work. The exhibition focuses on 5 pigmented abaca pulp paintings; 20 embossed, pigmented flax pulp paintings; and one chine collé etching. These new works were created during residencies near Barcelona in Capellades, and in Fabriano, Italy.
