Now on View: An Online Exhibit of New Work by Ingrid Restemayer
The Initiative Art online show includes numerous examples from Ingrid Restemayer’s large scroll series recently created with funding from an Artist Initiative Grant by the Minnesota State Arts Board. The show features works with images of animals used as pseudo-illustrations paired with a surface covered in fields of French knots. The work is indicative of her mixed media/fiber work which incorporates traditional embroidery techniques, dyed papers and hand-pulled intaglio prints combined through collage.

Also included in the online exhibit are many of the source etchings. These intimate animal snapshots are etched by hand on discarded plastic gift cards. The etching is then processed and hand pulled like a traditional intaglio, but with much smaller editions.

For further information about the work, purchases or studio visits, feel free to call or email Ingrid at:
