Steffen will be debuting his first woodcut reduction print, Abyssal Sage, at the opening of Don Gorvett's expanded gallery space in downtown Portsmouth, NH. Don Gorvett is a renowned printmaker who makes large-scale woodcut reduction prints on an antique French Tool etching press in his Market Street studio. This summer, Steffen has been studying printmaking with Don and has worked to blend his unique style with this age-old craft. Join Steffen, Don, and other artists to celebrate the opening of the new gallery space.
