Gretchen Huffman

Hello all! Sorry for the lag in blogging, after Kristen’s amazing wedding last week we are all finally settling back down into the normal routine of things again!

Gretchen Huffman is a printmaker whose work reflects on the idea of stories, imagination and interpretation.

“I love stories, I am continuously fascinated with the strange and humorous occurrences that happen in my everyday life. Stories grow out of these events and, far from being a didactic re-telling of the factual events, good stories are “delivered” replete with embellishment, nuance and theatricality that serve to communicate the emotional states that accompany the story. Awe, curiosity, disgust, disbelief and especially humor are the emotional reactions that tell me a story is a good one. As an artist of course my interest is in the visual detail contained in these narratives. As I recount events in my head they exists in acute detail with all the vivid splendor of that detail. My work spins out of that narrative detail, not to illustrate a verbal story, but to visually portray my exaggerated imagination and interpretation of events.”

(The artist featured today is actually having a show opening Nov.6th at our gallery in Lincoln Square, so if you like her work you should definitely come check it out in person too!)

    was some sort of pathway yet unforeseen gatherings like a layoff, medical bills and the

About Us

Fill in the Blank Gallery was formed out of the desire to create a space where art can be presented, discussed, created, performed, written, shared, and taught on an accessible level. Our goal is to foster creativity in our community, which is so full of talent but perhaps lacking in creative outlets. Part artist collective, part gallery, we feature a wide range of artistic works each month including fine art, craft, film, and music.
