Annelies Dykgraaf is the Archway Gallery featured artist for November.

Concentrating on Relief printing, Annelies Dykgraaf creates beautiful fine art imagery. Using either wood or linoleum, the background is cut away leaving the image to be inked and pressed onto paper. Woodcut printing dates back to the 5th century AD in China used to decorate fabric. Europe began using woodcut on fabric in the early 14th century but the development of printing on paper did not occur until the end of the 14th century when France and Germany manufactured paper.


Originally considered a lesser type of printing when introduced in the beginning of the 20th century, Linocut printing gained popularity when the artists of the Taller de Gråfica Popular (People’s Graphics Workshop) founded in 1937 in Mexico City made effective use of the linocut in their powerful graphic posters. After Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso use the technique to advantage in the 1950s many other artists adopted it.

Born in Nigeria to missionary parents, Ms. Dykgraaf earned a BFA from Calvin College and studied in Lacoste, France on a scholarship through the Cleveland Institute of Art. A resident of  Jacksonville since 2001, she is a funding member of Jacksonville Consortium of African American Atists and the Art Center Cooperative.
