Trained as a painter and calligrapher, South Shore artist Corinne D’Italia was drawn to “the unexpectedness” of printmaking 15 years ago. It’s an art form with special challenges, she said, and, sometimes, unanticipated rewards.

D’Italia’s one-woman show of 30 prints and one painting will be on display for a month at the Vine Hall Gallery of the South Shore Natural Science Center in Norwell starting Wednesday. An opening reception will take place on Oct. 18, 6:30-8 p.m.
