Sherrie York

The Quiet Hour
linocut

A self-taught printmaker and compulsive wanderer of landscapes, Sherrie York finds her inspiration in the natural world. Through the medium of linocut Sherrie uses primarily a reduction method (all the colors of an image are printed from a single block in successive layers) to find her way to places inspired by personal experiences and discoveries. She lives and works in Bristol, ME.

Sherrie’s linocuts have been presented in numerous national and international exhibitions. In 2019 a major exhibition of her work was hosted at the Museum of American Bird Art in Massachusetts.  She has been an invited artist on projects of the international [Artists for Nature Foundation](http://www.artistsfornature.com/) and has been Artist-in-Residence at Acadia National Park, the National Audubon Society, and the [Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum](http://www.lywam.org/). She is a member of the instructional staff at [Audubon’s Hog Island Camp](http://hogisland.audubon.org/) and the [Farnsworth Art Museum](https://www.farnsworthmuseum.org/), both in Maine. Sherrie also serves on the boards of the Society of Animal Artists and the Midcoast Audubon Society, and is the Coordinator of the [Audubon Artist Residency at Hog Island](http://hogisland.audubon.org/programs/art) in Maine.

Sherrie has written: “I am especially interested in strong rhythms and patterns between subject and environment. I find it’s the shapes around an object, rather than the object itself, that are often the most compelling. When an image I create sparks a memory I feel it provides common ground for sharing stories and understanding the perspectives of others. Shared stories help us not only to celebrate the beauty found in our natural world, but also to address issues of wildlife, water, and land conservation.”

In addition to making linocut prints, Sherrie works as a designer and illustrator for a wide variety of projects and clients, including the Audubon Society, Trout Unlimited, Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (Iceland), and several state and federal natural resource agencies. These projects reflect her interest in natural and cultural history education.
