Gallery 2014 presents the work of Enumclaw artist Curt Wells, on display through July 1 in City Hall.

Wells presents carefully designed linoleum prints. He uses sharp tools to cut away negative space in each of his linoleum block prints, rolls ink on the block and presses it to paper. His images depict scenes from today as well as scenes from years past. Each image is carefully designed and printed in a numbered series.

“I have always been an artist,” Wells said. “I found my love of printmaking in high school.”

He has worked as a screen printer, graphic designer and art director, and currently works for a commercial printer. While his art is primarily linoleum block printing, Wells enjoys exploring new methods and new mediums.

Gallery 2014 is in the council chambers at Enumclaw City Hall, 1339 Griffin Ave. Hours for the exhibition space are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, except national holidays.
