February 13 - Demonstration in etching techniques by Lynda Beckwith
The February 13th meeting will feature a demonstration of etching techniques by Mercersburg
artist Lynda Beckwith. Beckwith first became interested in etching when she took a class in 1981
to just try it out. Between moving around a good bit and working full time she didn’t have a lot of
time to pursue printmaking for several years but continued to draw and paint. She enjoyed
printmaking so much that in 1994 she began working with dry point on Plexiglas plates using an
old washer ringer for a press, which achieved reasonable results. When she began working with
the Penn’s Woods Printmakers in 2004 she was able to hone her skills and learn new techniques
under the guidance of Penn’s Woods mentor, Sue Frotscher, and from her fellow printmakers.
Lynda’s works will be on display along with the other members of the Penn’s Woods Printmakers
during the 11th Annual IceFest in down town Chambersburg.
