Local printmaker Samantha Black will be displaying her linoleum/woodblock prints in the show “FORGET ME NOT” at APSU’s Trahern Gallery 108 from April 6-9, 2015 . The exhibition will be open daily from 10 a.m.-5p.m. There will be an opening reception on Monday, April 6 from 5-8p.m. All events are free and open to the public.

Black’s solo exhibition will display portraits of elderly men and women, some of whom reside in a nursing home Black has been associated with for the past 12 years. Black uses strong marks that are carved into linoleum or wood to construct portraits that exaggerate the aging process. The final portraits are printed on delicate rice paper that could symbolize the thin, fragility of the skin of an elderly person.

“We are able to learn so much by sitting down and speaking with an elderly person, they have so much knowledge about life before us”, Black said.
