Brandon Gunn and I will be giving a start-to-finish photo plate lithography demonstration at Art Gym. As part of the demo we'll show how you can indeed print a litho plate on an etching press!
6-8pm. Free to attend.
Brandon Gunn (Education Director, Tamarind Institute) and I were the co-jurors of imPressed: Destructive Beauty. This show is the 2nd annual, national call for entry printmaking exhibit at the Art Gym Gallery. Together we selected 27 prints which include a varied range of processes and combinations of: linocut, woodcut, mezzotint, aquatint, engraving, plate lithography, photo lithography, screen print, letterpress, photopolymer intaglio, monotype, and laser engraving.
I'm pleased to have one of my Subway Showtime monoprint lithographs in the group exhibition Saturated, part of Print Austin, on display from January 15 - February 20, 2017. The show is presented by Flash Collective and CRAFT.
Saturated presents work by artists around the country whose prints feature intense use of color. The vibrancy of many works is such that their true hues cannot be captured by a camera and can only be appreciated in person. Serigraphy, relief and lithography methods are utilized to create art ranging from abstract to representational, all attesting to the technical mastery of the included artists.
Artists in Saturated:
Jamaal Barber, Atlanta, GA
Elizabeth Busey, Bloomington, IN
Veronica Ceci, Austin, TX
Raluca Iancu, Ruston, LA
Michelle Miller, Chicago, IL
Gregory Santos, Denver, CO
Kurt Seaberg, Minneapolis, MN
Dec. 8th, 6-8pm, I'll be taking part in an evening of artist talks along with three other exhibiting artists. Free and open to the public.
On Friday, Nov. 11, I was invited to spend the day at the print shop of Colorado College. I showed my recent lithographs and talked about my work with the undergraduate printmakers. I spoke about the need for community and the power of art, the art making process and the genesis of ideas, the importance of protest and politics and creative expression. Also spoke about ways to make art outside of an academic setting and how a place like Art Gym Denver can provide the necessary equipment to continue onward.
Yeah, they enjoyed seeing my art but it was my collection of printer's proofs they were enraptured by. Which is totally understandable! Who wants to look at my junk when there's a folder with the names Cecily Brown, Sanford Biggers, Gigi Chen and Dinh Q Lê off to the side? I feel ya!
This new (editioned!) screen print is the first piece I've made since moving to Denver and was curated into the Innuendo group exhibit at Ink Lounge.
Two of my screen prints (Bromance & Archimedes' Screw) have been curated into what is sure to be an amazing show of unrepresented artists working in NYC. I can't explain how excited I am to be in this exhibit! Thank you Denise Bibro Fine Art.
Opening reception: Thursday, June 19, 5-9pm
