Tom Killion Lecture
June 5, 2016
The Wildling Museum is proud to announce that artist Tom Killion will be speaking on June 5 at 3pm surrounded by his exhibition California’s Wild Edge: The Coast in Prints, Poetry, and History. Killion’s Japanese-style woodcut prints vividly portray the coast’s ever-changing moods and diverse formations. From Southern California to Humboldt County, each work colorfully captures the meeting of land and sea.
California-born artist Tom Killion is well-known for his four decades of work in the medium of woodcut printmaking. Killion uses Japanese carving tools, papers, and his own adaptation of the traditional key-block process to create relief prints of his landscapes. Killion currently resides in Point Reyes, CA and recently released his newest text, also entitled California’s Wild Edge: The Coast in Prints, Poetry, and History, through Heyday Books in summer of 2015.
