Impressions: an exhibition on printmaking
Spring Creek, by Whitney Cookman
Having been graduated from The Pennington
School in 2003, Jamie Moore is now a teacher of history at Pennington as well
as a practicing artist. During his student days at Pennington School he became
good friends with Rhyder Cookman ’03—artist Whitney Cookman’s son. Through this
friendship, Mr. Moore was able to get a close-up view of the wood engraving
process. Under Mr. Cookman's tutelage Mr. Moore quickly developed a love for
the process and eventually integrated his love for the past by studying and
trying his hand at wood engraving styles throughout history.
Mr. Cookman P'03 is a wood engraver, and shares his amazing
print work with us in this exhibition. He is also a painter and graphic designer.
During his 35-year tenure at Random House, Inc. in New York City, Mr. Cookman
served as a graphic designer, art director, Senior Vice President and Creative
Director. He has designed book covers for authors John Grisham, Deepak Chopra,
and Barak Obama, just to name a few.
All are welcome to attend a reception with the artists to be held on Saturday, October 11, from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.
