In Honor of Agnes is a new display in the Main Hall Display Case at the Highland Park Public Library, 31 North Fifth Avenue through January 31, 2017. Coleen Tyler is displaying collographs and letterpress prints she created in honor of Agnes Martin, an Abstract Expressionism painter and recipient of the National Medal of Arts.
“The work was inspired by a recent exhibit of Martin’s paintings that I saw at the Guggenheim,” Tyler, said. “She’s one of my favorite artists.”
Tyler, a long time Highland Park artist, has worked in many different mediums including art books, watercolors, oils, and collage. This is the latest of many exhibits she has lent to Highland Park Public Library.
