"Humming and Harmonizing" Folk Art inspired hummingbird print, blue / off white
By Lisa Houck
Located in Wellesley, MA
Lisa Houck is a highly established artist from Boston, recently re-located to Maine, with a very large following devoted to her exceptional paintings, watercolors, mosaics and prints reminiscent of Folk Art, Matisse and Aborigine art. Houck is widely admired and recognized for a gorgeous sense of color and a sensibility both playful and serious that is uniquely her own. Lisa Houck "Humming and Harmonizing" 2023 Linoleum Block Print Edition 10 34.25 x 24.25 This print is not framed. This is one of her 3 most recent large format bird prints in various shades of blue and aqua in a series which now consists of a total of 10 related prints. They are outstanding installed individually or as groups. Houck's highly sophisticated and complex sense of pattern and design is delightfully whimsical, as well as extraordinarily compelling for its knowledge of so many artistic forms which the artist is miraculously able to reference and incorporate, while maintaining a style so distinctively recognizable as her own. Lisa Houck has an outstanding reputation for not only her work as a printmaker but for achievements in painting, watercolor, mosaic and textiles as well. She has executed many large permanent public art commissions for interior and exterior sites in Boston and nationwide including ambitious murals for Dana Farber, The Children's Hospital, Frieda Garcia Park and numerous libraries, playgrounds and other public buildings. Her works have been featured in many museum and gallery exhibitions and are included in a multitude of public and private collections. Artist's Statement: "I work in watercolor, oil on wood, ceramics, mosaics and etching. Each medium allows me to invent new ways to express my view of nature through color and pattern. My artwork has been exhibited widely, and is in numerous public and private collections, including The Boston Athenaeum, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston Children's Hospital, Fidelity Investments, four libraries in Broward County Florida, Hale and Dorr, Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston."

"Chittering & Chattering II" Folk inspired linocut series bird, blue and white
By Lisa Houck
Located in Wellesley, MA
This is one of a series of 6 related bird prints, identical in size and each the same shade of bright blue and white, which are as commanding individually as they are in groupings. Lisa Houck is a very established New England area artist as recognized for her public installations, paintings, watercolors, textiles and mosaics as her work with linocuts and woodblock prints. At times reminiscent of Folk and Aborigine art, inspired as well by James Audubon and Hokusai, Houck is widely known for a gorgeous and elegant sensibility which is both playful and quite serious that is uniquely her own. Lisa Houck 'Chittering and Chattering II' Linoleum Block Print, Edition 10 11 1/2 x 11 1/2 Inches (Image Size) Sold individually or as sets of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6. These prints are unframed. Also available is a separate series of 8 larger linoleum block prints (editions of 10 each, 35 1/4 x 23 1/4 inches image size) of very related bird themes each in a different shade of blue. These series are also sold individually or as sets of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8.

"Coyote Scratching His Fleas..." - Woodblock Print
By Daniel Stolpe
Located in Soquel, CA
Vibrant print of a coyote by Daniel Stolpe (American, 1939-2018). Titled, numbered ("Presentation Proof"), signed and dated along bottom edge. Presented in a black frame with a double mat. Sheet on verso with information about the piece, stating that only 5 Presentation Proofs were created, making this piece 1 of 5. Paper size: 24"H x 28"W. (2018) Master artist and Native Images lithographer Dan "Coyote" Stolpe slipped out of his non-functioning body, and is running free at last and howling in the hills. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Dan's father introduced him to Native American teachers of Art and Culture through the Woodcraft Rangers, who influenced Dan for the rest of his life. "Everything was patterned after a tribal structure," Stolpe said. We learned about Indian life and lore and we had Indian guys teach us how to make Indian costumes and about Indian dance and drums. That's what got me interested." Dan made his first drum when he was 14, and he was quietly playing that same drum during his final days of life. Stolpe attended LA Co. Art Institute (OTIS) on scholarship until 1962, when he dropped out to Apprentice with artist Don La Viere Turner in Glendora, and then with Master Printer Joe Funk in Venice until 1966. Commissioned by the Smithsonian Institute, he moved to Washington DC to illustrate extinct birds...

'Soaring and Surfing' Folk inspired black/white woodcut print of bird in flight
By Lisa Houck
Located in Wellesley, MA
"Soaring and Surfing," Black and White Woodcut Print, Edition 10, 35 1/4 x 23 1/4 Inches, is Lisa Houck's newest print, very related to her highly sought after linoleum block folk art inspired prints in shades of blue of birds in various stages of flight and at rest. Lisa Houck is a quite well established artist from Boston (who has recently re-located to Maine) with a large following devoted to her exceptional paintings, watercolors, mosaics and prints reminiscent of Matisse and Aborigine art, with gorgeous color and a sensibility both playful and serious that is uniquely her own. This print is not framed. Houck has also executed many large public art commissions for interior and exterior sites in Boston and nationwide which are ambitious murals in oil or mosaic in hospitals, libraries, playgrounds and other public buildings.
