Wade Womack studied design and printmaking at BSU, receiving his BA in 1984. He works primarily with the reduction wood block printing technique and currently teaches woodblock printing and drawing at riverARTadventures studio in Bend, Oregon. After 30 years as a printer and master framer, Wade is applying his knowledge of craft to pieces he calls “Total Art”, which engage multiple senses: visual, auditory, experiential and time based, to bring a deeper appreciation of our environment and that which surrounds us. He feels art is a tool of expression. “I want the art to be unified in expressing an idea, a story. The line work, color, subject matter, all exist to express the idea. I want to effect the viewer in every way possible… intellectually… emotionally… physically… subconsciously. ”
