Annette DuBord : It's Always Something
On view 6 September - 13 October 2019 in the East Gallery
The Rourke Art Gallery + Museum is pleased to present It's Always Something, an exhibition of lithographs by Annette DuBord in the museum’s East Gallery.
Annette “Nettie” DuBord was born and raised in Fargo, North Dakota. She studied Printmaking at Minnesota State University Moorhead and runs Funhouse Press with Cameron Peterson. Annette currently resides in Fargo with her partner and fellow printmaker, Cameron Peterson and their cats, Maybelline and Diva.
It’s like my father always said to me, he said, Roseanne Roseannadana, it’s always something. If it isn’t one thing—it’s another! It’s always something.
Random thoughts occupy a lot of my time in “Nettieworld.” I attempt to research and plan out my work. I fail at that. My best laid plans meander off into something totally different and I am fine with that.
As a printmaker, I love the process and rituals of printmaking. The area of polymer plate lithography gives me the opportunity to learn and experiment in a relatively new process. It allows me the freedom to be random yet controlled in creating my images. What you see and what I see may be very different and that pleases me.
