Buenos Dias Guadalupe and all,

My printmaking professor moved from Portland to Guanajuato and set up a printshop called "Piramidal Grafica". You can find it with a simple search. His name is Jim Hibbard, his daughter also teaches printmaking. You can see his work on the site, the studio looks very nice. Good luck with your workshop and hopefully I will be able to participate in the Prints for Peace sometime.

Subject: Call to Moku Hanga Artists
Posted by: Annie B

Wow, I don't know yet if I'll be able to swing this financially, but there's going to be an international moku hanga conference in Japan next spring, June 7-12, 2011. This morning I got an email announcing some of the details. According to the web site,
The conference will gather professional print artists, art educators and scholars in the field of woodblock printmaking to exchange current research information and experiences with Japanese traditional craftsmen, printmakers and print related art suppliers and toolmakers.

The conference will move between two locations, Kyoto and Awaji island (where the ?Nagasawa Art Park Japanese Printmaking Program? takes place). In Kyoto there will be workshops, demonstrations and moku hanga exhibitions. The second half of the conference in Awaji will focus on lectures, panel discussions, presentations and exchanges with colleagues.

An email I received this morning notes that from now until December 18 applications are being accepted for a juried woodblock print exhibition of prints made in the waterbased moku hanga tradition or with contemporary materials that reflect moku hanga principles. There are PDF entry guidelines here.

I really hope I can go to this conference!
