Alison Hildreth’s masterful prints layer color, pattern, and texture, playing bold form against subtle patterning. She deploys multiple printmaking techniques to achieve complex images that hint at the specific then spin away. Last year she had a solo show at the University of New England and group shows at Bates College, Tufts University, and the Portsmouth Museum of Fine Arts in New Hampshire. She shows regularly at the June Fitzpatrick Gallery. Her work is in the collections of many institutions, including the New York and Boston Public Libraries, the Metropolitan Museum, the Brooklyn Museum, the Portland Museum, the Smith, Wellesley, Bates, and Colby College museums, and the Farnsworth.
