Mark Rumsey “Canopy” Print on Display at WMEAC Office

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.

Stop by the office to see for yourself and consider supporting WMEAC by making a donation.
