Reception: Thursday, September 28, 5-7PM

Women of Woodcut brings together three women who are united by the ancient process of relief printmaking. With works ranging from formal to whimsical to cautionary, each artist tells stories through the carved mark.
Meaghan Busch grew up in Sarasota, Florida; a town most well known for its lazy beaches and involvement with the Ringling Circus. She received her BFA from the Corcoran College of Art & Design in D.C. in 2008 and her MFA in Critical Arts Practices at George Mason University in 2011. Her work deals primarily with childhood fascinations, dreams, and fairytales. She currently resides in Falls Church, VA where she operates Blue Cat Press. You can view her work at www.meaghanbusch.com.
Jessi Hardesty is the Discipline Coordinator of Visual Arts and Curator of Collections and Exhibitions at Carroll Community College. She received her BA in Printmaking from Salem State University in Salem, MA (the fabled Witch City) in 2011 and her MFA in Print Media from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI in 2014. An anxious mark maker, she fixates on imagery that explores melancholy, identity, and escapism. She lives and keeps a studio in Baltimore, MD. You can view her work at www.jessi-hardesty.com.
Jun Lee is the Artist in Residence in Printmaking at Lee Arts Center in Arlington, VA. She received her BFA in Illustration in 2002 and Post Baccalaureate in Printmaking in 2004, both from Minneapolis College of Art & Design, and her MFA in Print Media from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI in 2007. Her work discusses themes of competition, survival, and the loss of innocence through folkloric imagery. She lives in Falls Church, VA. You can view her work at www.junleeprints.com.
