Marybeth Frampton (b. 1985) primarily works in textile, printmaking, and painting. Recent imagery has been inspired by her love of music, particularly John Denver and Kenny Rogers, but her compositions are largely abstract. Her work revolves around mark, with shape and form created through amorphous clusters of small line or text. In the past year she has embraced large-scale abstract paintings, creating a series of bold canvases reminiscent of Helen Frankenthaler's early work.
Frampton is enthusiastic about the screenprinting program at CCW, designing and producing prints, t-shirts, and other printed products. In 2019 she participated in a collaborative printmaking project with artist Mark Rice at Philadelphia's Pressure Club print shop, where she learned color etching and monoprint techniques.
