Hi all,
Two things: The reply buttons for the baren list don't work for me-
they open my Safari (apple) browser and I get an error. I'll report
it to apple, the bug, but maybe Mike or someone knows about this- I
can just hit reply and delete the digest text to reply so no biggie.
Also the message from Colleen was quite interesting, Wanda, but the
URL was not included- could u pass along the link, or did she forget
to include it? Congrats to Colleen, sounds like a cool show and a
really nice venue for it.
In the 2 months my drawings and prints hung in the Co-op cafe here ,
among a few different looking proofs I also hung a few carved blocks,
to show process.
Seems like people really need to see process to get into prints, the
best way being demonstration, as Patti did so well at our lisecond
exhibition of tools, prints, blocks, etc and explanatory text.

Anyone from the list, btw, who is in the area, A wake and art show
opening for Carol Gilbert-Wagner will happen on the 14th of April at
Coffee Garden, Franklin Street, Sacramento. Call me for details etc.
at 916-873-3637.

Hi there everyone.
I don't know if this is a correct subject for the digest
I am slowly getting the hang of this - I keep looking for the digest
on the website - to make the posting there. Can you only post via email?

anyway I would like to put an image on the website on the members
gallery but I just do not understand the instructions at all. What is
an ftp url??? Sounds like knitting... Would anyone out there like to
do this for me? I can send the image at the right res.

anyway - back on topic - here is some news... I have got an
exhibition in a biggish gallery in Southampton in November - it's a
new gallery called The Bargate Monument Gallery - It's a medieval
building. (
I am going to do some big woodcuts of full length people I think. I
want to make it a bit of a freak show as there are some crazy looking
people around this town. I will include text too - things I overhear
people saying on buses etc but I think I will use my vast collection
of wooden type for the text - life is sometimes toooo short to cut!
(I have also been collecting the posters that they put in the stands
for the local paper - with some bizarre headlines. But sorry folks as
there is only one of each of them they are going to be monoprinted on!!)

I'll keep you posted as to how I am doing with the woodblocks though
- I'm thinking egon schiele! I have been really getting into cutting
lines so they look drawn - perhaps that was another unexpected thing
from the japanese course. I like the idea that the japanese didn't
want the print to look like it was cut.

I won't do a print exchange this year I think. I have already
committed myself to the print zero - and then this show came up so...
I might spread myself a bit thin.

hopefully I'll be able to post an image soon. The ones on my website
are v old.

Hi Katherine,

I can give you a hand this time, and ftp isn't so terrible if someone
walks you through how to do it. Happy to give you some pointers later if
you like.

best regards,
