I will be loading ALL THE WORKS here to the Pattern Shop Studio on Tuesday, the October 25th! Woohoo! Hope to see you all there at the reception, November 4th, 6-9pm.
Thank you and happy October, still....
Hello everyone. I recently sent out the "official" announcement for the upcoming Pattern Shop Studio show to those who have signed up on my contact list. The opening reception will be the first Friday of November 4th, 6-9pm. I will be there, of course! And they will be having "Salon Talk" on the following Saturday which I am assuming that questions and answers type discussion with artists. I am so excited for this show and sincerely hoping that many people can make to the gallery during the show. All the prints I will be showing are new, meaning I produced after the Summer Art Market show in June. If you have any questions concerning the show, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much!
On past Friday I took a one day workshop to learn woodblock reduction printmaking technique at Dry Creek Art Press here in Denver. The master woodblock printmaker/water color painter/my neighbor, Leon Loughridge, was our instructor and showed us every step of the process, so patiently. While reduction woodblock printmaking is a very economize way to make prints, since you do not use as many blocks as you would need for "regular" woodblock printing, you are required to think almost mathematically to create your design totally backward. So needless to say it WAS challenging despite our design was simple. I learned a lot and did something so "untraditional" as usual like this image, printed upside down intentionally. It was such a pleasant day, sincere thanks to Leon and his lovely wife Joan. Keep on printing....
Happy First of October to everyone! It is hard to believe that there are only THREE more month for 2016! October seems to be a big kickoff month for many events throughout the town, as people start having more indoor activities. I myself have been glued to the printing studio at ASLD trying to produce good prints for the November show at the Pattern Studio Gallery. Next Tuesday is my first "portfolio" day for the show and I will be meeting the gallery owner, Sharon Brown and the ASLD curator, Robin Whatley, to show my works. I have been quite nervous about the meeting but should feel confident to show what I have produced since the post Summer Art Market, at least that is what my husband says. The show opening is the first Friday of November and I will be sure to send you a "formal" invitation via email. Please sign up at this CONTACT site to receive my future show and event schedules.
Here is my first blog.
