We did do this a some years ago, as I remember. I cannot remember exactly how it
was handled but I do know I still have a lot of plastic boxes that we used to
stand them up in...somewhere! Every once in awhile I come across them.
I think an actual calendar with pages that flipped would be easier. I think we
all took a month and then sent it to someone to be coordinated. We would have to
do it in sets of 12...and randomly put it together so everyone got one. A good
idea, Maybe we should do it to fit our baren portfolio cases...they seem to be
gathering dust in Texas as we have sold very few in the last few years. At $35
they are a pretty good buy.

Hello all,

After a while of reading posts, I think it's time to introduce myself. My
name is Jessie Riley and I'm an art student in Indiana. I just recently
discovered woodcut printing and have been loving it so far.

It's really interesting to read this list, because my professor is heavily
influenced by the German Expressionists and other Western printmakers. The
different perspective here is definitely a change from what I've been used
to so far, and it's good for me, I think.

Here are two recent pieces of work:

I look forward to continuing to read and contribute!

Cool stuff. Try printing with the paper down and the block above and you won't have such a stong emboss or use mat board instead of the blankets.

Hi Barbara,

Thanx for the info. I was thinking of a calendar with pages that flipped. Good idea of a random 12 prints.

And thanx for reminding me about the portfolio cases. I keep meaning to get some.

And I... really like Parnassus 2 (that is the title, right?). Keep on printing!

Where has the time gone? It's almost Halloween, and I'm still trying to figure out what happened to summer. It has been an eventful Fall, with several trade shows (MAPC in Minneapolis, and Printopolis in Toronto, ON, Canada have been the most recent). I took a chance and returned to Canada (see my earlier blogs on my last trip to Toronto). The border crossing was uneventful this time, and Printopolis was just great! We managed to watch the tail end of their steamroller printing, and caught up with our friends from Drive by Press, just a few feet apart in downtown Toronto. April Vollmer presented a Moku Hanga demonstration, along with Liz Forrest at the Japanese Paper Place. It was very well attended, and extremely well done. Congratulations to both ladies for their great presentations.

MAPC was back
in Minnesota this year, and Minneapolis proved to be a fantastic location. The Product Fair had a good mix of new and old faces on the vendors. We had a chance to visit Cole Rogers and the group at Highpoint Printmaking Center. If you haven't been there - make an effort to visit. They've done an absolutely great job putting together a state of the art printmaking facility!

Our most popular product at both shows was our Vinyl Relief Plates. These . . .

Subject: Governor's Reception
Posted by: Linda Beeman

Last night was the reception for the artists chosen to have their work in the Governor's Residence. The residence is nothing I expected. It is a sprawling contemporary home decorated with Michigan wood, textiles, books, and now, art.
Gov. Granholm greeted each one of us, spoke about the house, the art and took pictures with each of us with our art.

I was thrilled to find my three pieces together in the Living Room.

My friend and fellow Ovid artist Tom Tomasek shown with the Governor and his pastel titled, "Fayette". It is the limestone cliffs at Fayette Historical State Park in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. His three pieces are also in the Living Room.

All the artists gathered with the Governor.
