NAA Printmakers meet at Mary Pollak's Indigo Studio

On October 26th, members of the NAA Printmakers Interest Group met to share information, ideas, and work.
The group talked about current print shows of interest (Boston Printmakers: "Contemporary Cuban Printmakers" at Laconia Gallery, 433 Harrison Ave., Boston, through November 22nd; "Evolution of a Shared Vision: the David and Barbara Stahl Collection" at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, NH; and "Print Fair North" at Zea Mays Printmaking in Florence, MA November 14th-15th.)

Members also began to explore additional venues for exhibitiion (galleries, art associations, community colleges).

The meeting included an informal, supportive sharing of recent work.

The next meeting, tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, November 17th, at Indigo Studio, will focus on experimenting with miniature prints using an 'old-fashioned'credit card scanner. This idea grew from an article by Susan Jaworski Stranc about creating a miniature print for the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT.

Susan Jaworski-Stranc's portfolio of new prints, "In the Kitchen"

After three months of planning, designing and cutting linoleum blocks, the editions of10 new reduction prints have been signed, framed and are presently hanging in a three person show entitled, "In the Kitchen" at the Newburyport Art Association. The show is a collection of new work inspired by the art of cooking and eating well.

I decided to take an edgier approach to subject matter. Animals (in living form) take center stage as well as antique milk bottles and a spoof on Bell's Seasonings.

The show continues through Wednesday, October 28 at NAA, 65 Water Street, Newburyport. 11-5 daily,
October 24 until 7P www.newburyportart.org
