Bilinguals See the World in a Different Way, Study Suggests
--Colour perception is an ideal way of testing bilingual concepts because
there is a huge variation between where different languages place boundaries
on the colour spectrum.--

Dave, do you find this so, specifically in relation to color? To what
extent do you see "blue" differently from when you were a kid? Does this
have a unique effect on Japanese woodcuts?

Fascinating article.

Baren Summit San Antonio 2011

Thanks to Julio, we have a link on the Baren web home page! Now finding the sign up information for the Summit is quick and easy.

I am in San Antonio with planning meetings for the Baren Summit San Antonio, and it is getting exciting! We are fleshing in the schedule with more special offerings. There will be an exhibit at the Aztlan for the work of baren participants called Peaks and Valleys: Summit Relief Print Exhibition. The show will run from June 9 - 30th.
San Antonio Museum of Art is well known for it's extensive Asian collection. John Johnston, Coates-Cowden-Brown Curator of Asian Art arranged for the Summiteers will get a special viewing of the collection's Japanese prints not currently on display. Afterward we can lunch and explore the new Riverwalk Museum Reach runs right behind the museum and is full art "enhancements". This is a link to some pictures of it: .

We will also visit the McNays print room, which specailizes in prints from the western hemisphere, inclucing many modern masters such as Mary Cassatt, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pablo Picasso, Diego Rivera, and Jasper Johns.

Lyle Williams, curator of Prints and Drawings at the McNay, will juror the Relief Prints for Relief, a benefit exhibition for the Japan tsunami victims to be held at the same time as the Baren Summit show.
So you can see that we will have a printastic time in San antonio, and you should be here! Get on over to and sign up!

Can you hear the sound of tiny little package wheels screeching off my

Oh.maybe it's just me.

In any case, all the print sets left today and should be in the participants
doorsteps soon. Due to oversized prints I had to "substitute" many of the
mailing packages to accommodate. Those of you who sent oversized prints,
take note that most coordinators don't have as much choice in mailing
supplies as I do.

Thanks to the generosity of many of our members I was able to upgrade all
our foreign participants to Priority International so even you in far away
lands won't have long to wait.

I must say this is a WONDERFUL set! I love how the process of moku-hanga
brings out color and design. I will have the web galleries done as soon as I
take a breath or two. I'm still cutting blocks for the City of the World
project and I want to get that done quickly since I'm horribly behind from
my self-imposed schedule.

IN any case, Exchange 47 coming right atcha!! (er, that is "at you" for
those who don't speak Gringlish).
