Screenprint Society regular Mary Ott has a new show of screenprints and etchings at the Touchstone Gallery, on view through May 1. Mary often arrives at Pyramid Atlantic with her portfolio bursting with dried ornamental grasses, which she transfers to her screens by placing them directly on the exposure unit. At left, Mary washes out her image.
