students printing by hand with ink and paper
September 14 November 16, 2021
Ever wanted to make your own prints? Come learn easy ways to make prints in class and that you can make at home. We’ll be exploring monoprinting, the painterly print. We’ll start with rolling ink onto Gelli plates, using leaves and simple stencils to make our marks. Then we’ll move on to work on the etching press with oil-based inks, using non-toxic cleanup techniques. We’ll explore additive, subtractive, and trace monotype techniques.

If Only... carved wood, acrylic, hand cut recycled wood 9" x 15.5" x 2"
April 2 May 2, 2021

Uncluttered compositions, bold color and balanced structure are core values in my abstract work. In Double_Space I bring two bodies of work together: mixed media prints and carved, painted wall objects. They both originate from printmaking and celebrate the uplifting nature that color can bring to our lives.  My non-objective work explores the power of color to unite, enhance and define space.  A limited palette and geometric shapes derived from architectural forms reflect my minimalist and graphic principles, which embrace my gravitation towards order.

Six dark lines move and weave from left to right over varigated yellow background
January 7 January 24, 2021

Crtl-P is the command to print (on Windows PC at least). It is the abbreviated sequence of simple actions that transform a digital image into a physical one. As common as it may be, this ordinary act of creation speaks to the voluminous history of image-making, the dissemination of knowledge, and of course, printmaking.
