Michael B. Platt

Open 10-5 weekdays, 1-5 pm Saturdays 

Long known as a printmaker, Michael Platt now prefers the more encompassing designation, “imagemaker.” His artwork recently has turned to digital imagery and book art …fragments, allowing us glimpses of our selves. He continues to create artwork that centers on figurative explorations of life’s survivors, the marginalized, referencing history and circumstance in the rites, rituals and expressions of our human condition.”
