Hi Harry, what an interesting idea, using the periglass (is that
plexiglass?) as a plate. Are you rolling up acrylic onto the periglass? I'm sure that
must be a bit of a trick, as it dries so quickly.

happy new year everyone,

I joined both the formatted(new) and unformatted (old) forums on the 1st of this
month. Thursday I tried to cancel the old version of this digest and to rejoin the
new version. However, somehow I ended up canceling both. In the meantime, I posted
an introduction and an inquiry on the forum (see below).

Today I signed up for the new version only, but find that I am once again receiving
both. Does someone know how to cancel the old without affecting receipt of the new?

Since I do not know if my inquiry had any responses while I was "out" of the forum,
I am posting it again and hope that anyone who was kind enough to respond will cut
and paste that same response and post it again.



Hi! I am a new member. Hope I am using the correct channel to add my two cents.

My name is Su and I am a printmaker/architect living in CT. Associations with New
School Printmaking shop, CCP and Silvermine. I do woodblock (least prolific to
date), litho, and intaglio.

I have taken classes in woodblock printmaking with Mike Lyons at CCP and April
Volmer at Brookfield Crafts Center, for which I co-designed the current master plan
as the design consultant to a local architectural firm. My drawings are still on
view there, I believe. By the way Mike is teaching again at CCP in January of this
year if anyone around the area is interested. I can testify first hand that he is a
fabulous instructor and can teach at all levels. His workshops are always exciting
and full of energy. April is also a great instructor, particularly for anyone
starting out. She is highly organized in presenting the basics in a short amount of
time. I still keep all of her handouts at my side as I print.

I love the tools and the deep right brained activity of carving. I just ordered lots
of new papers from McClain's and intend to use them to print some white line works
over the next several months. For incentive, I just signed up for the current baren
exchange. I am also about to try some 4" square images. Don't know yet if the
details will hold at that scale. Any hints on which papers work best at that small a
print would be appreciated.

I would also love to know if anyone knows of publications of works by any of the
Provincetown white-liners that might still be in print. Can anyone recommend
something that has some decent images of work by that group?

Hi Su-
Welcome! Amazon has a book about Blanche Lazell, an early Provincetown
printer whose prints are really wonderful. I haven't seen it in
person, so can't recommend it 100%, but it might be worth a try.

Dear Friends.

I'm awfully sorry to read of the personal loss that Patti has sent out.
Surely all of us wish you better times ahead, Patti. There is literally nothing
like losing a parent.

I had wondered if the BAREN listserve was somehow not coming through because
it's been so quiet. Much relief that I'm not missing missives. Thanks to so
many of you, my printmaking life is greatly enrichened in community, tips and

As for me, I've been dreaming of an incoming stone litho press w/stones that
I've been informed will arrive. My printmaking friend, Lars Johnson, has
acquired a studio near where he lives, so it's one loss, one gain. And as my duties
to another printmaking group have settled down now that it's going very well,
I can once again pick up my tools and start following my dreams of
printmaking. And oh do I now literally dream about printmaking! Hooray!

Wishing each and every one of the BAREN a very successful, happy and healthy
new year.
