Chris Turnham "National Parks" Art Opening 5/31/19

Chris Turnham:

Illustrator and printmaker Chris Turnham has created a collection of artwork to accompany the release of his new children's book National Parks of the USA.  These hand pulled silkscreen prints use graphic shapes and limited color palettes to depict the parks in their most distilled forms, recalling the iconic screenprinted Works Progress Administration (WPA) posters that have been synonymous with the National Park Service for decades.
