Faces of Annapolis: People and Places Inspire Alum

Artist Carlin Menzin, an alumna of the SJC Graduate Institute, created a series of nine woodblock prints abstractly based on her time in Annapolis. 

From a portrait of “Granny” to a scene on State Circle, the colorful prints will be on display starting Thursday in the Cheney Gallery on the second floor at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts.

Menzin (AGI13) wrote short narratives about her work, based on real and fictional imagery. Her series explores the relationship between biography, fiction, and imagery.

“I don't think of myself as either a historian or a biographer, and these works are not meant to be history or biography. But I do make pictures of people and their places. Inevitably, this means that I cast my subjects in a light that reflects both them and me.“

Meet Menzin at an opening reception for “Faces of Annapolis” on Thursday from 5:30-7 p.m. The exhibit will run through October 25 at Maryland Hall.
