Axis Gallery is pleased to announce Dixie Laws’ exhibition titled Leaves, Series II. Laws will exhibit new linoleum and monotype prints based on the leaf shape. Following her last show working with the philodendron leaf shape, the current work continues in the same vein. This series of prints works with transparency and more dimensional space. Most of the prints use several layers of ink and some use layers of fabric and netting to provide an illusion of three dimensional space. This adds to the mystery of the images.

Dixie Laws received her BA from UC Davis and her MA from California State University, Sacramento. She has been a teacher and was a consultant for the Art in Public Places at the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission. She has worked primarily in printmaking, monoprints, linocuts and collagraphs. Her work emphasizes the outdoor environment. Pattern and the grid are recurring themes in her work. Dixie’s art is included in the collection of the Sacramento Metro Arts commission as well as several Kaiser Permanente medical offices. She is affiliated with Axis Gallery and Myrtle Press in Sacramento, and is a member of the California Society of Printmakers.
