More about First Thursday Gallery Walk featuring Hilary Lorenz

Brooklyn Bridge Park is home to over 120 species of birds. For Birding, Hilary Lorenz put herself in the role of bird watcher, complete with binoculars and log book, to identify and photograph as many birds as possible throughout the Park. For six months, Lorenz made bi-weekly bird watching trips to the Park. After photographing the birds, Lorenz drew each image onto linoleum and carved it out. Using a hand crank printing press, she made multiple impressions of each block onto paper before cutting out each bird. Lorenz has arranged the richly colored and textured prints along 99 Plymouth’s hallway in groups of aquatic birds including Canada geese, mallard ducks, wood ducks, mergansers, seagulls and more. 99 Plymouth’s Community Room contains similarly produced images arranged to represent the bird habitat at the Pier 1 Salt Marsh. Lorenz will also lead demonstrations of carving and printing a linoleum block on a portable printing press. Participants will be invited to ink pre-cut linoleum blocks and print an image to add to the artwork on the Community Room’s walls.
