Barbara and Julio--

thank you very much for your advice. Yes, I actually printed on humid
paper... But I think it is right that the paper got too dry in certain
areas (I am in Canada and it's quite dry here). I think I will start
stacking the paper in the otosu order.

Kind regards,

Just 9 more days to sign up for this (non-Baren) exchange .......

##### SWNS07 #####


The SSNW and SWNS exchanges are print exchanges conducted by an
independent group of printmakers from around the world at the time of
the two yearly solstices. Our exchanges are open to anyone who would
like to participate. We have a Yahoo group under the title SSNW. You
may see prints from our past exchanges posted on that site.

Just to avoid any possible confusion, although many of our
participants are members of the Baren group, we have no official
connection with Baren, and this is not a Baren exchange.

Here are the details for our next exchange.

Coordinator: Tina Moore

Deadline for sign-ups: June 21, 2007

Deadline for prints to arrive at coordinator's address: August 1, 2007

Tina Moore
40 Herbert St.
Laura 5480
South Australia

Paper size: 5.5 x 7.5 inches or 14 x 19 cm ... 1/16 of a standard
sheet of printing paper

Medium: ... no restrictions, any editionable technique you like ...

etching, lithograph, lino, woodblock, collagraph, foilograph,
serigraph, pochoir, digital, etc.

Theme: The theme for this exchange is "weather". This can be
interpreted in so many ways that it should suit most everyone. You
can think about people with sunny or cloudy dispositions. You can
think about the solstice and the differences between weather in the
northern and southern hemispheres at that time of year. You can think
about global warming and the environment. And so on and so on.

Cost: For those in Australia, the cost will be $10 AUD. For those
everywhere else in the world the cost will be $10 USD. You can send
cash, or Tina has indicated she has a Paypal account. Follow the
usual procedure to send money via Paypal, and give the Paypal folks
the following email address for Tina:

Sign-up procedure: To sign up, you may just indicate your desire to
do so in an email to the Yahoo group SSNW, providing you are a
member of the SSNW group. Alternatively, you can send me a private email at:

Edition Size: We will not have a final edition size until the close
of the signup period. At that point we will let everyone know how
many prints are needed. In past years, the number has been around 30,
and we expect much the same again this year. In the past we have made
provision for those who wish only limited participation. If, after
the final number of signups is known, you only wish to submit a
smaller number of prints, we will allow you to do so, but you will
only receive that smaller number of prints in return.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly.

Cheers ...... Charles

Send Message: To this poster

Hello Everyone,

you may be wondering what happened to me since the
opening of DEDALO last May 26th.!
The oening was fabulous and I was
surprised at the amount of people who came over to see the show and the
demonstrations. I was extra busy and never had the time to put online
some pictures that were taken that day. However, here they are:
demostrations by
demonstration by Bonnie Christensen http://www.centrodedalo.
my guided tour http://www.
Many of you will see their
works while others won't see them because the tour was not totally
photographed. However, as soon as I have a little bit of time, I will
take more pictures of what the show looks like in its entirety and each
artist on the list will be linked directly to their own image or
I hope you enjoy the show
