“Scratching the Surface”
This exhibit features the scratchboard art of Washington State artist Debbie Hughbanks. Whether finished in traditional black and white or with color added back in, all works feature animals from around the globe. Please join us to enjoy a unique look at the animals that share our world.
Debbie brings recognition to what might be a less familiar artistic medium. “Fine art scratchboard is nothing like the paper “scratchboard” of our youth, although the basic subtractive technique of removing India ink with a sharp implement is similar. Working with clay board, India ink, colored inks and other means I would like to showcase what can be achieved with this wonderful medium while exploring one of my favorite subjects/themes – animals.” – Debbie Hughbanks
