FRANKLIN COUNTY ART ALLIANCE
ART

A great work of art is that which moves and touches one's spirit and adds to one's experience
of the world, but does not impose on one's values. It lets one take from it what one wants or
needs.
(Maritza Burgos)

                     COMING EVENTS

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.
