RED LODGE — The Arts Guild will showcase a special, monthlong exhibit of woodblock prints from the late Edith Freeman.

This educational exhibit travels to the Arts Guild courtesy of the Museum and Art Gallery Directors’ Association of Montana.

Freeman was an artist, teacher and rancher. She was originally a painter who experimented with woodcut techniques in the 1960s. She mastered the reduction block woodcut technique, printing multicolored images using a single block of wood.

Her lush and serene prints capture central Montana in all its varied seasons, evoking memories and reminding us of our region’s beauties.

This wonderful exhibit, drawn from the Yellowstone Art Museum’s permanent collection of Freeman’s work, features her works through all four seasons in Montana.

It also includes 16 pieces, along with one of Freeman’s original wood blocks, and her printing tools.

The exhibit is free and open during the Arts Guild’s normal hours, Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Groups of all sizes are welcome to view the exhibit. For more information, call the Guild at 446-1370.
