Webb's Banners grace FAC facade
The unofficial opening of the Amherst Biennial started last week with the celebration of Carolyn'Webb's banners which were installed on the front of the Fine Arts Center (FAC) at UMass . These prints celebrating nature on campus, a graceful elm tree that stands tall behind the FAC having survived the blight that destroyed many of this species years ago in this country. Carolyn took a picture of the tree on campus with her I phone this past winter. She captured it's winter's naked structure and modified these images with Photo Shop to create these unique banners.
Carolyn's whose main focus is sculpure, has been has exploring printingmaking for 10 years at Zea Mays Printmaking which has informed her process in creating these banners.
This FAC Banner installation will be held over from this Summer to be included in this Fall's second addition of the Amherst Biennial, which will be officially opening on Oct. 6th at 5 - 8 PM with performances on both Amherst College and UMass Campuses.
