DENNIS – The Cape Cod Museum of Art welcomes White Line Woodblock Print artist Kathryn Lee Smith Thursdayas part of its current Innovators of the White-Line Print program.

The Innovators of White-Line Print program, which runs through March 26, is part of the museum’s new “Crossing the Line” initiative.

“Crossing the Line” is an educational initiative which presents small, focused, educationally-oriented exhibitions that assist visitors in understanding historical, technical, and conceptual ideas in art.

The lecture will begin at 1 p.m.

The exhibit presents examples of white-line prints for their inception in the early 1900s through the present day.

It also shows a step-by-step photographic presentation of the technique and the original woodcut blocks used for printing.

The exhibit was organized by Suzanne Packer, a white-line artist and the first director of the Cape Cod Museum of Art.
