Serigraph entitled "Duck" by Anita Gronendahl
Serigraph entitled "Duck" by Anita Gronendahl. Singed in pencil on recto: "Anita Gronendahl". The print is titled in pencil: "Duck" and is number 12 of 48 prints in the suite, written in pencil: "12/48". Because these silkscreen prints are handprinted by the artist, they are limited in number (in this instance to 48). For collectors of local artists, this Gronendahl print would be a nice addition.
Anita Gronendahl (American, 1941-1994) worked primarily making serigraphic (or silkscreen) prints. Her screenprints, like "Duck," show a simplicity of design, strong structure, and good control. Gronendahl worked and exhibited her artwork in her gallery, a converted eighteenth-century barn near Doylestown, PA.
She trained at The Philadelphia Museum College of Art (University of the Arts). Gronendahl opened the Barn Studio Gallery in Plumstead Township in 1976. She lived on Landis Road in Doylestown at the time of her death in 1994. Gronendahl judged area art shows, served as president of the Doylestown Arts League, and was a member of the Upstairs Gallery in Lahaska.
