A fun evening was shared with 40 – 50 guests for the Happy Hour House Concert, featuring artist/songwriter Wendy Jane Bantam and musician Marty Steinhausen.
Then everyone joined in the Constellation Studio Tour and viewing of “Treasures from the Flatfile”. The drawers were opened one by one for a dazzling display! My works ranged from grad school etchings, to the latest “just finished” print, to some collectible antique Japanese books, and the scroll print by Tuula Molinen. Here are the views:
A productive residency for John-Mark as he created large scale woodcut prints, both as unique experimental impressions, and as a “reductive” edition. He worked fluidly on the large press, and tested papers, registrations, color layers, stencils and details. Beautiful prints were made – suggestive of architectural blueprints, schematic perspective of imaginary cities, map-like graphics. Thanks for the dialogue and support!

A global network is drawn between diverse artists and their printworks on an intimate scale. These artists operate on multiple levels in the print community, through exhibiting at international biennales, working in collaborative studios or independently, as mentors and teachers that elucidate and interpret print culture through their craft and concept. The quality of their vision is expressed through an attentive nature and handwork, while understanding the impact of ink and impression.

Thanks everyone for a great workshop! We first made paper from cotton linters and Half-stuff, and t-shirts. And then we processed kozo fibers, which we cooked, washed and beat by hand and in the beater. Great experiments and experiences were enjoyed, and good discussions of the process and history. Here are some action shots!
