Japanese ghosts

Just found this blog post about Meiji period monster prints. Great designs and some of the best impressions of this type of print I've seen. Here's my favorite from the post.

Good News about Annie

We had a great turn out last Thursday and Saturday for Annie Bissett's reception and talk.  Thanks to all of you who made it a special week!  I wanted to pass on the good news that Annie's print, Borders #1-U.S./Mexico, has just been accepted into the Boston Printmakers 2009 North American Print Biennial, which opens February 15, 2009 at Boston University!  Go, Annie!

Annie Bissett in Seattle

For those of you in Seattle this week, there are two chances to meet Massachusetts printmaker, Annie Bissett, whose exhibit is on the walls at Cullom Gallery through November 1st.

Gallery Walk Reception with Annie Bissett, 10/2, 6-8 pm.
Thursday is the night of Seattle's monthly Gallery Walk. Come down and see the show, Annie Bissett: moku hanga, far away, up close, and meet Annie!

Artist's Talk with Annie Bissett, 10/4, 2 pm
Then on Saturday, I'll be hosting a talk with Annie Bissett at Cullom Gallery at 2 pm. Annie will talk about her contemporary approach to the ages-old art of Japanese woodblock printmaking, and her thoughts about her commercial illustration work versus printmaking. Come with your own questions for Annie, bring a friend, and stay for a glass of wine; everyone is welcome!
