Prints by Spitzack

Seattle print maker Charles Spitzack has a beautiful new show of woodblock prints and lithographs up at Bauhaus Books & Coffee, 301 E Pine St. on Capitol Hill. Spitzack is a young but tremendously accomplished print maker, having graduated from Cornish just last year and already recognized as one of Seattle's best, with an appearance earlier this year in Seattle Print Arts' ten-year anniversary collection. His images are both subtle and strong, showing a truly masterful use of line and color. His work can be as bold as a sharp stick, or as gentle as a breath through lace. The show, titled "Far Away Home," opened Oct 1st and runs through Nov 1st, but the opening reception is Oct 14th at 7pm with party to follow. See it.
