Faces of Annapolis

Chaney Gallery, 2nd floor

A collection of nine large, multi-colored woodblock prints, hand-pulled by the artist, Carlin Menzin, treat the places and living narratives of Annapolis.


Menzin created a series of prints based on real and fictional imagery of her time spent living in Annapolis. The actual woodblocks and preliminary sketches will also be on display with educational components.
