Hi everyone, I think spring is finally getting here!

This is especially for those in and near NYC:

I'd like to invite folks to my upcoming solo exhibition of new work at Manhattan Graphics Center. Following are the details.

“99¢ Store Miracles”
New Works on Paper by
Sarah Hauser

Manhattan Graphics Center
481 Washington Street
between Canal and Spring Street
New York, NY 10013
(212) 219-8783

Dates of Exhibition: May 1 - 31, 2007
Reception: Sat. May 5, 6-8pm
Hours: Tues-Friday 10am-10pm
Saturday and Sunday, 10am-6pm

As a child, I always loved the 5 and 10¢ stores and with each trip would wonder what little treasure I would find there. That fascination has continued through the years, and has evolved into my current series of works on paper, “99¢ Store Miracles”. The inspiration and “models” for these works are toys which I purchased at 99¢ stores. I set them up in ever-changing miniature landscapes in my studio.

I work with a variety of media, constantly finding new ways to combine them. For this exhibition, I have been working with printmaking and drawing media in combination with gouache, inks and metallic paints.

Best wishes
Sarah Hauser

Colleen, I could chip in $25 for the catalog if you think that will help.

Hi all,
I'm one of your new members and haven't really contributed anything
yet, but I thought I could start with showing you my attempts at easing
myself back into printmaking.

If you're interested in wood engraving at all, I've just started doing
it again after a long long break and my first proof of my first block
along with the whole job progression is on my blog:

All comments / suggestions welcome.
