Wednesday’s Wood engraver …

December 10, 2014

Sarah Chamberlain was born in Stamford Connecticut in 1953. So she is of my generation with a wonderful printmaking pedigree. She graduated from Hampshire College with a B.A. in printmaking, then she apprenticed one year to Barry Moser.
Chamberlain  exhibited at the Printmakers Annual show in the 1980s several years running  at Mount Rood Community College, Portland, Oregon. During this time  she did some One Woman shows, and displayed some works at the Boston Society of Illustrators Show and the Seventy Books of the Seventies shoe in the New York Public Library.
She illustrated various books including Donkey Qaty by E.P, Dutton and printed, designed and illustrated a miniature book for Jo Ann Reisler and illustrations for the Year of the reader poster for the  Library of Congress.  These images are from the Three Bears and Stone soup.

    Just echoing previous comments. Wonderful engravings which I’ve really enjoyed meeting, and great to learn about an artist I was previously unaware of. Thanks so much for sharing and doing so with such thought and care for the ignorant among us!
