CLICK HERE to enter


January 10-February 28, 2016

Grove Gallery & Studios is pleased to announce a juried exhibit for printmakers.  Lasting Impression honors the memory and passion for printmaking of founding member, Gretel Geist Rutledge.

Gretel discovered a deep love and talent for printmaking upon her retirement from the Michigan State University theater department where she designed sets and costumes for more than 100 productions and served as design consultant for the principal theaters in Michigan, as well as in New York. In the art of printmaking, she found a heart connection to “the process” of design that she enjoyed in her career. 

Even though Gretel thought of herself as a beginning artist embarking on a second career, she was an artist in the truest sense of the word. Gretel was a supportive and encouraging gallery partner dedicated to building a community of professional and emerging artists.

In this spirit, Grove Gallery & Studios invites applications for Lasting Impression, a juried exhibit for printmakers.

Bev Hundley, Juror

Bev Hundley is a full time artist continually exploring innovative printmaking processes and presentation for recording meaningful imagery.  With degrees from Alma College and Michigan State University, she began her training in traditional printmaking during the 1970’s and continues to combine techniques to depict the local natural and social landscapes.  She has studied at Ox Bow in Saugatuck, Kalamazoo Institute of Art School, and Kalamazoo Book Arts Center.  She worked extensively on K-12 arts curriculum and has been active with the Southwest Area Michigan Printmakers.  Bev’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in the United States and abroad and is included in corporate collections in Michigan.  She recently illustrated a children’s book for a Michigan artist, and regularly incorporates intaglio and relief processes into her own handmade books.  Bev resides in Grand Haven, Michigan.
