Printmaking is the larger topic this day, covering a great range of aspects:
John will show us different print styles, showing examples of etchings, woodcuts, silkscreen prints & lithographs...plus one or two "Fakes" & what to look for!
He also contacted two other artists: Jill Alo and Randy Shell.
Jill Alo is a contemporary fine artist and printmaker currently working with solar plates & printmaking, making fine art "etchings" using the sun as an etching medium. From her website www.jillalo.com" you can read her resume, see examples of her work & read her artists statement. You can also go to http://www.facebook.com/JillAloArtist .
Randy Shell owns a company named "Goat Horn Books". He will talk about the history of the revival of fine art printing, some of the major presses and bring some examples. He will also talk about what to look out for in collecting private press books. Randy's store is on abebooks.com and has a 5 star rating according to John.
Looking forward to see y'all
Google map does not allow me to set a pin where the 'better' entrance is. I tried, and it got denied.
The fine arts library has two entrances, and on the map is the more difficult one. The easiest way is - standing in front of Bass Concert Hall, to the left of this is another little stairs and entrance - to the fine arts library. Go up one flight (two, if you come from the Trinity entrance) and enter the library.
Ask at the library counter for the room for Austinbookworkers. Usually we have room 4.104, but that might change they told us.
The parking situation got a lot worse - UT requires permits now, this is new. There are stillfree places on East Dean Keaton heading Eastward, where you have to reverse in, they are currently still free after 6pm on Weekdays. We will talk with UT to see if we can get permits.
