Shades of black: Mezzotint prints at the Arts Center feature chickens, dancers

Email

Using a painstaking process originally developed in the 1600s, artist Linda Whitney creates prints that bring out the many shades and textures black ink on a white field can have.

Her work pairs jingle dancers with Betty Boop, the fine feathers of a chicken and a metal sheriff’s badge and “The Space between History and Hollywood” — the title of Whitney’s mezzotint exhibit at the Arts Center in Jamestown.
