Leslie Pearson Eco Prints at the Margaret Harwell Art Museum
March 6 – March 28, 2021
Located at the Margaret Harwell Art Museum
Poplar Bluff native Leslie Pearson is a multimedia artist who utilizes many fiber based materials, processes and techniques. During the COVID lock down, she began doing Eco Prints of the local and indigenous botanicals in her region of North Carolina. Eco Printing is a technique where plants, leaves, and flowers leave their shapes, color, and marks on paper. Plant material bundled in layers of paper is soaked on mordents and modifiers then steamed to release the dye found naturally inside the plant, creating a contact print in the shape of the leaf or flower used. Some pieces include text based layers as a way to give the work more visual texture and allude to a narrative. Free admission.
OPENING RECEIPTION: Saturday, March 6 from 6:00 – 8:00 P.M.
