Polly Apfelbaum was at Durham Press in late January working on new Dogwood Alley black and white monoprints. A total of 8 prints were created during Polly’s visit. One Dogwood Alley was created in 2010 making a total of 9 unique prints. The monoprints are made with woodblocks that are handmade cross sections of various Dogwood tree branches and trunks from Bucks County, PA. Each block is individually inked and then placed by Polly. The print then makes 1 pass through the American French Tool Etching Press. The prints are then curated and put on drying racks for several weeks until the ink is fully dry.
