Power Tools, Plywood, and the Artist take Vancouver
VANCOUVER, BC.-The Devon Gallery is proud to host Vancouver's first major showing of the nationally renowned woodblock print artist, Fred Brown the Artist, and challenge the perception that fine art and the creation of fine art are generally considered the stuff of high society.

This perception is challenged when an artist gets supplies from the local hardware store. Using plywood instead of canvas and power tools instead of a brush or pencil, Fred Brown the Artist creates fine art in the form of woodblock prints.

A woodblock print, or original woodcut, is essentially art that is created from a wooden stamp. It consists of a three-part process: painting, cutting and printing where the plywood/woodblock is cut and printed several times to build up one image. This is a labour intensive process that can take months to complete one woodcut.

Using the woodcut medium, Fred is able to create various images like flowers, landscapes, and raw abstract, that come from different genres yet they are similar enough to know that they are woodcuts. It is the subject matter of the prints and the shear size of the images that set Mr. Brown apart from other woodblock print artists and makes this exhibition so spectacular.

Fred is showing his woodcuts at the Devon Gallery, 688 Denman Street, Vancouver,BC, to October 11, 2005. There will be a public opening on September 16th from 6:00pm - 9:00pm with the artist in attendance. His work can be viewed at www.fredbrowntheartist.com.
