The Gaston County Art Guild presents a retrospective of Clover resident C.M. Kakassy’s original printmaking, “Looking Back,” March 4-April 8 at Arts on Main, Citizens National Bank building, 212 W. Main St.

Originally working in sculpture, Kakassy’s eye for form and space led her to painting, photography, hand-made papers and original printmaking. She has spent years working in printmaking media – intaglio, serigraphy, relief and lithography.
