CAMDEN — Mid-Coast Audubon will host artist Sherrie York who will present “From Battleship to Birds” at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 19, at Camden Public Library, 55 Main St.

Linoleum block prints, or linocuts, share their origins with naval ships, their process with woodcuts, and their history with artists from Picasso to Queen Elizabeth. Visually, linocut styles run the gamut from graphic social commentary to delicate floral, landscape and wildlife images. An internationally recognized linocut printmaker, York will share her own linocut process, inspiration, and frequently bird-focused work.

York’s linocuts have been presented in national and international exhibitions, including the Woodson Art Museum’s prestigious “Birds in Art,” and the Society of Animal Artists’ “Art & the Animal,” and her work is represented in corporate and museum collections in the United States and abroad. She serves on the board of the Society of Animal Artists, is the coordinator of the Audubon Artist Residency at Hog Island Audubon Camp in Bremen and a current board member of Mid-Coast Audubon.
