Opposing Forces: Energetic Tensions in
Printmaking and Photography
Opening reception Friday, June 9, 5-8pm
Opposing Forces is a call for hand-printed photographic imagery using alternative processes, such as: photogravure, photopolymer intaglio, cyanotype, gum bichromate, carbon, salt, albumen, gumoil, etc; basically, any alternative to straight digital printing. We are looking for images that explore the boundaries between photography and printmaking and that involve some form of hand-work. The purpose of the show is to present works that incorporate elements of printmaking and of photography and that seek to create a synergy or even a tension between the two.

Challenge convention and take chances in this monotype workshop that explores the rich intersection between painting and printmaking.
In this unique workshop, watercolor washes are laid down on Yupo paper, allowed to dry, then cut up and reconfigured into multi-layered monoprints when run through the press with damp paper. To these painterly washes, linear marks are added using drypoint and transfer drawing techniques.
We invite the experienced and the inexperienced to join us in this creative, colorful journey into the many possibilities of watercolor monotypes…

Narrative Relief Printmaking
with guest instructor Ramon Deanda
Learn advanced techniques of relief linoleum printmaking in this two-day weekend workshop with guest instructor, Ramon Deanda. Deanda, a printmaker, muralist and sculptor, hails from the borderlands of Texas and draws from a rich cultural and family history to create his thought provoking often humorous art. In this workshop he will guide participants through his process of planning, designing and mark marking to create a 2 color narrative linoleum print.
In relief printing, the image is printed from a raised surface which was produced by cutting away non-image areas. This class covers several techniques including multi-plate and reduction printing. Artists will work with non-toxic water based inks and linoleum blocks.
No experience necessary, but at least a basic understanding of relief printmaking recommended
