Remarque’s annual juried print exhibition each December is an incredible opportunity to see contemporary prints from around the world, and to see the unexpected common threads running through this collection of pieces that were made in such remote places, by such different people.
This year, we have art from twenty-one states and six different countries, including Finland, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Mexico, and Canada. The breadth of subject matter is impressive, and yet the pieces still speak to each other in meaningful ways. It’s a nice reminder that art is and always has been a way of bringing people together, and even though we have hundreds of different cultures and languages around the world, we all share a common—if unique—vocabulary in visual art.

This class will be given by the long time Mokuhanga practitioner, Dan Noyes. It is a comprehensive introduction to Japanese Mokuhanga printing, which involves a combination of relief, stencil, and wood grain printing. The paper used is washi and rice paper -- thin Asian paper known for its unique texture. Images are transferred from the carved block to both sides of washi paper using a hand-held tool called a baren.
Class date: Saturday, January 21, 2022
Class time: 10 AM- 5 PM (lunch break included)

What a Relief! Intro to Linocut Printmaking
Linocut is one of the best ways to enter into the magic of printmaking. Carving into, well, yes, linoleum, creates sharp imagery that is in essence a stamp to be printed. Linocut lends itself well to all sorts of imagery- from landscape to portrait, and beyond. This one-day workshop will cover the basics of linocut relief printing while also exploring the wide range of possibilities offered by this medium. We will learn different carving and shading techniques that lend themselves to these various styles . Each student will create a 5"x7" one-layer linocut, and will have the option to print them as cards as well. No experience is necessary - this will be a fun, exciting class for all levels.
Class Date: January 28, 10am - 5pm (with a lunch break)
Class Fee: $130 + tax all materials included
