In conjunction with our Earth Month campaign, the WMEAC office is currently host to original artwork by international artist Mark Rumsey. “Canopy” is a series of 75 prints created by Rumsey for installations at the Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium and the Gallery Sho.dan in Montreal.
The print is a repeating pattern block that depicts the leaf forms of the common trees of the native forests of West Michigan and Belgium – beech, maple, and oak. For a $50 donation interested persons may select a print off the wall until they’re gone.
Rumsey is a Grand Rapids based installation artist working in prints, paper, cloth, space, and light. His work has appeared locally at Frederik Meijer Garden & Sculpture Park as well as nationally and internationally.
A Michigan native, Rumsey earned a BFA in Ceramics and Philosophy from Grand Valley State University followed by an MFA in Printmaking at Kendall College of Art & Design.
