I'll be presenting a workshop at ConcordArt in Concord, MA from June 20-22, 2017: White Line Woodblock Printmaking and Beyond. Come to beautiful Concord and learn first hand about the art of the traditional white line woodcut, from design to cutting and printing. Stop there, if you're a traditionalist, or take it to another level, if you like, by experimenting with creative block cutting and inking methods, adding textured woodblocks and/or stencils for a collage effect, or adding another block, for a multi-layered approach.
The Lamb, my woodcut monoprint (2015) was recently accepted to the 36th Bradley International Print and Drawing show, at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. The show will run from March 11 through April 27, 2017, with a Visual Voices Lecture by juror Kathryn Polk, on March 9th.
My white line woodcut, Roof Shovelers, was accepted to the Member's Juried II, on view at ConcordArt in Concord, Massachusetts now through March 26th.
I will also be presenting a demonstration of my white line technique at ConcordArt on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, from 10:30 to 12:30. I'll begin by giving a brief overview and history of the development of the medium, and then take the audience through the process of creating a print, from design, transfer of drawing to the block, cutting and printing. I'll also show examples of creative inking, and show examples of white line prints that have been combined with line blocks to create multilayered color images.
Witch Hollow, my small white line woodcut, will be included in an exhibit at the Boston Athenaeum entitled New England on Paper: Contemporary Art in the Boston Athenaeum's Prints and Photographs Collection (April 6 through September 27, 2017). The public is invited for free to the show's opening on Wednesday, April 5th from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
The Print Club of Cleveland is hosting it's annual Fine Print Fair this coming week at the Cleveland Museum of Art. My work will be represented there by Paramour Fine Arts of Franklin, Michigan.
This is an opportunity for the public to visit, learn about prints and printmaking techniques, and purchase fine prints from print dealers who hail from all over the US. The museum uses proceeds from the event to add to their esteemed collection. Please stop by, if you're in the area!
