Framed and ready to go!

Send Message: To this poster

I would like some recommendations on resources for making paper. I am
interested in books and possibly any websites or videos that particularly
show the equipment used. I have had a request to make some molds and deckles
so I would like to gather information on these items especially relating to
different types and sizes.

Thanks, Robert

My best to you,

some woodblock print shoes for you! ?!

Subject: Mystique Series - #7 - printing stages
Posted by: Dave Bull

Back when I was making the My Solitudes series, I made it a point to show a progress set of images during the construction of each print. I haven't been doing that for the current series, mostly because the prints are much more 'open' images - there is nothing specifically difficult to understand about how they are made.

But I was asked by one of the collectors in an email the other day about this, so I guess - why not - let's do one for this current print. It's not like I have nothing else to do ... (How's that for making somebody feel guilty?

It's actually not so easy this time though, because as there are two prints being made at the same time on a longish strip of paper, it won't fit in my scanner (a typical A4 model). So only one of the two prints in this pair will appear, and it will be #7, a surimono design by Hokusai.

Let's get under way!

We don't need to bother with the blank paper, so here's the first step (these will be clickable for larger versions):

That is printed from a block that is being used to print the design outlines for the entire series, as they are all based on the same dimensions and the same layouts (one each, vertical and horizontal) In case there is anybody out there who can't read Japanese, the vertical text is the series name: Hanga . . .

Bill and I made three more display panels out of pvc pipe and fencing.  It went pretty quickly once we knew what we were doing.  ;-j

Subject: New Wood
Posted by: Andrew Stone

I haven't been carving in a while and while I have a few works that still need a day or two of work to be completed, those unfinished prints are still almost a year old in concept and I feel the urge to do something new again.

I hope to have this little print done by the end of October.
While the subject is still cloaked in secrecy, I will say that I pulled out, then sawed off an end piece of my big cherry plank.

Here is that piece cut again lengthwise into two 7" X 10" pieces.
And again with the hanshita, my preparatory sketches/xeroxes glued on face down.

More to come.....

Subject: Art and the Environment Exhibition
Posted by: Linda Beeman

I am honored to have been chosen the only Michigan artist in this exhibit. I will be showing the 12 Views of the Shiawassee River.

The Interlochen Dow Center for Visual Arts Gallery will host its first Art and the Environment exhibition. Art related to the environment is something Interlochen students are asked to contemplate often as they create art in the woods of Northern Lower Michigan. 2011 will be the third year that the Visual Arts department has offered an Art and the Environment class where students are challenged to explore art-making from an ecological standpoint be it through the materials used, the concepts projects are built upon, or the nature influenced aesthetics of the work.

Six artists who address environment in their art work are included in this exhibition: Linda J. Beeman (Ovid, MI), Eric L. Hansen (Nashville, TN), Jill Parisi (NY,NY), Jino Park (Philadelphia, PA & Korea)), Mary Lyverse (Mesa, AZ), and Merrill Steiger (NY, NY).

At a time when ?environmental art? can be alarmist, cautionary, critical and often depressing, this exhibition was created with a focus on environmental education, celebration and respect.

The Art and the Environment exhibition will be presented from December 4, 2010 - January 22, 2011.
The artist?s reception will take place on Saturday, December 4, 2010 . . .
