Penny Peckham works primarily as a printmaker, and with a background in Art History, much of the work she produces relates to her areas of research, particularly art by or relating to women. This exhibition includes linocut prints from several series. The newest, which gives its title to the exhibition, is an exploration of simple still life elements. There are two works from the series A Taxonomy of (Art)Cats, prints of cats taken from various of Art Historical sources, and organized into playful scientific classifications, and the With these hands (self portrait) works are part of an ongoing series of long standing.
