Carol Slutzky-Tenerowicz has been fascinated by the landscapes surrounding her home in Elka Park all her life. As a painter inspired by the outdoors she works en plein-air, French for "in the open air." She also incorporates memorable places she has visited in her printmaking. Though there are many forms of printmaking, Slutzky-Tenerowicz employs the linocut relief technique. Slutzky-Tenerowicz begins by mounting a sheet of linoleum onto a wooden block. The areas of the image that will not be colored are carved away. A roller is used to apply ink on the surface of the linoleum that was left uncut. A sheet of paper is applied on the block and she puts it through her Vandercook, a rotary printing press made in the 1960s. The ink is transferred from the linoleum sheet to the paper, leaving a mirror image of the carved linoleum.

In Jack's Lawn, the pathway lined with maple trees leads to a stone wall and iron gate in front of an old house on a mountaintop in Hunter. It is a place from Slutzky-Tenerowicz's childhood that she still passes from time to time. She deives inspiration from locations around her home in the Northern Catskills. "It's always gorgeous here," she says. "I could look out my window at the same mountains and every day they would look different to me."

Jack's Lawn won the Deborah Geurtze Printmaking Prize for Original Print in 2010 at the Cooperstown Art Association's 75th Annual National Juried Exhibition. Slutzky-Tenerowicz's work will be on view from January 7 to January 30, part of "Invitational," a group exhibition at the Tivoli Artists Co-op. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, January 8, from 6 to 8pm. www.tivoliartistsco-op.com.
