December Show at WPG

New etchings, woodcuts and rubbings by Baltimore-based Trudi Y. Ludwig will be on view in the new show, Days o' Work, at Washington Printmakers Gallery December 1st through January 2nd. This is Ludwig’s third show at Washington Printmakers, and her first after a three year hiatus from the privilege of working in a studio.

Using the tapestry of nature as a backdrop, Ludwig’s current work grapples with contemporary conundrums by invoking time, motion, passages, pathways and perception, all with a whiff of art historical reference. A tension of opposites pervades her work: fleeting moments versus the unfolding of geological time; sacred beauty versus secular ephemera; big versus little picture; unscripted versus premeditated; acceptance versus denial; fearless freedom versus patient control.

Ludwig has been a member of Washington Printmakers Gallery since 1995. Her work has been shown in numerous regional and national solo and juried shows. She currently teaches Art History and Drawing at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), following eight years of teaching in MICA’s Printmaking Department.
