Tyrus, your website is fascinating (as are you). I enjoyed looking at your artwork, reading your bio and watching the video on wood cutting. I, too, felt a little chill up the spine as you sharpened the tool dry. Welcome back to Baren. I would encourage all Bareners to take a look. I had to remove the word "news" off your web address as my browser couldn't get there with it. Impressive work, Tyrus. Intriguing altarpieces, etchings and watercolors. I can't even imagine the amount of work you put into your pieces.

Nice to see you again, Tyrus, and a real pleasure to visit your web
site and catch up on your recent work. I spent over an hour roaming
around the site and reading a number of the entries in your
thoughtful and excellent blog. Thanks for speaking up on Baren Forum.

Le Green

The Third [Baren] Summit will be held at the Central Cultural Aztlan Gallery (Aztlan) in San Antonio. Hosted by member Le Green Schubert in San Antonio, Texas,
from Tuesday, June 14 through Saturday, June 18, 2011.

We are arranging visits to the San Antonio Museum of Art and the McNay,
which will include time at the print room to view some of their extensive
collection. A side trip to Austin, only an hour and a half away, can be arranged after the Summit on Sunday. There are several print studios and museums to consider a visit to.

Baren memberís will also be invited to participate in an exhibition
during the month of June at the Central Cultural Aztlan Gallery. This is a major cultural center in San Antonio.
There will be a hanging fee of $15,
We are also working on promoting additional print exhibitions, lectures, and demonstrations: some for the Baren summit participants and some that will include the general public.

There is space at Le's house in San Antonio, only 3 blocks from the Aztlan for several participants to stay, and some other guest rooms and bedroll spots offered by local artists. If you prefer to stay in a hotel, let us know, we can get discounts at several places.
If you want to come a week early or stay a week late, we love company and love playing tour guide.

Participants will be included in an exhibition of relief prints.
Email me off list at for an information packet and early registration application.
Practice saying "Ya'll" and come on down to south Texas.Bar-b-Ques and Tex Mex will be served! And we do know how to cook forf Vegetarians, so don't ya'll worry none.

Subject: We Are Pilgrims: the Book!
Posted by: Annie B

I'm happy to announce that my "Pilgrim series" of woodblock prints is now available in book form! Printed on thick paper with a slight gloss finish and available in either hard or soft cover, We Are Pilgrims showcases all 15 woodblock prints from the series, which was created between November 2008 and July 2010.


As followers of this blog know, these 15 prints examine the lives of the first wave of colonists in North America and their interactions with the native peoples who already occupied the land. The book is 72 pages and includes short prose-poem text that weaves through the images, describing the stories that inform each print.
