Betsy Browen – Printed Woodcuts

Betsy’s first woodcut was in 1970, a primitive looking black and white family portrait on a piece of scrap oak. Cutting an image into the wood is a commitment; it’s hard to go back. “The direct and bold look of woodcuts, is, I think, partly a result of the way they are made. It is a bold act to cut for hours with sharp tools, a backwards picture, onto a slab of wood and believe it will be pleasing, or meaningful, when it is printed.”

Betsy Browen’s printmaking studio and gallery is housed in a historic church, selling the current editions of hand-printed woodcuts, as well as the work of local and regional artists. It is open daily from mid -May through mid-October, and select days in December. Web store open all year.
