This just in from the American Print Alliance - - -

The American Print Alliance 2010 Print Dialogue Day at Kennesaw State
University, November 6

Please join us Saturday, November 6 for a full day of panels and demonstrations,
fun conversations and intense discussions. How to promote yourself as an artist
in the 21st century, with Ben Goldman, Sam Parker and Terri Dilling. Demo of
multiple plate transfer processes by Michael Marling. “Print Chat 20 x 20”
slideshow presenters include Terri Dilling on her Beltline print installation,
Andrea Emmons on pinecones, Stephanie Smith on PrintSpin at Hambidge; let us
know if you would like to run a set. And of course we’ll have plenty of space
for open portfolios, so bring your work to show.

Exhibitions include the Print BIG panels from the Atlanta Printmakers Studio
summer steamroller event, Soap Box 2: Prints, Politics &
Democracy and Printellectual, a juried student printmaking exhibition (free
entry, information at our website). We will have an installation from previous
iterations of the Alliance's PrintSpin project and an opportunity for you to add
pinwheels: bring any square (8 x 8" to 12 x 12") two-sided prints (printed or at
least color rolled on the "back" or two prints securely pasted together but
still flexible) that can be cut and spindled for the cause. And/or bring your
plates and blocks and we’ll print some on the spot.

Free and open to the public. Suggested donation $20 (students $8) includes a
free past issue of Contemporary Impressions (subscriptions and prints from
previous years will be available for sale at a discount).

More information and directions to campus at RSVP (yes or

supplies): or Valerie Dibble,770 423

Send Message: To this poster

I just returned from a month hopping around Europe. An amazing trip
for an american girl born in the pacific northwest. I read your
account of your past and your beautiful print Wouter and wanted to say
how lovely it is to own it and how special it must be to you. My
print was about the most magnificent place I have seen in my life, my
own back yard. In my travels across Europe i wanted to go to the
island where my grandmother was born, a return to a past I never
knew. It was an amazing little journey and when I read your account I
felt a connection to past and present. All of the prints in this
exchange are special, as always Baren came through with beautiful and
exceptional work. Thank you to all the talented participants in this

I also wanted to say hello to Barbara Patera and hope she is doing
well. I remember sitting next to you, Barbara, at the Vancouver
summit and your artistic energy was very inspiring. I was working on
a small wood cut and you said it would be a good one. Once home life
took over and I never finished it. Now I want very much to find that
piece of wood and finish that little print in your memory. Not only
are you talented you are an inspiration and your legacy in the arts
will live on for many more eyes to see and enjoy.

Julio have you started the signup for the revisit 911 project? Or
have you decided not to do it? Would not want to miss out on this as
I was a participant in the original exchange.
Thanks, Marilynn

Well, one of the perks of the medical environment are single use, disposable scalpels. I borrowed one to see if it would work; this one came loaded with an #11 blade--a long pointed blade slightly beveled on both edges. The point is very tiny and very flexible and with a pair of 3X drugstore reading glasses and a LOT of patience to flip or clear the little bits around the letters I managed to finish all the letters last night. Fruit of a late night espresso.

Proofed today. All the letters are legible. Now to whip out the color blocks.
