Paper and Plank 
Dan Miller & Gene Shaw 

January 5 - February 13, 2022 

Paper and Plank Virtual Tour & Talk 

Cerulean Arts is pleased to present Paper and Plank featuring woodcuts and sculptures by Dan Miller and Gene Shaw.  Miller and Shaw first met as teacher and student respectively at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and have remained friends to this day.  With a lifelong affinity for wood – Miller grew up next to a lumberyard, and Shaw had a custom cabinetry and home-restoration business – each artist makes woodcut prints inspired by the woods, wildlife and structures of the Maine and Pennsylvania landscapes.  Miller draws and carves directly on the woodblock, while Shaw is more measured, methodically transferring his drawing to the block.   Balancing the process-oriented medium of printmaking, each artist also creates abstract sculpture with an emphasis on design, shape and color.  While Miller works solely in wood and Shaw incorporates a variety of materials, both create skillfully constructed assemblages.
