Annie Bissett at the Eric Carle Museum

If you live in and around Amherst, MA, make sure to stop by the Eric Carle Museum on Saturday, June 5th at 1 pm, to hear Annie Bissett and a panel of 4 other artists talk about sustainable printmaking methods. Following the discussion, Annie will be demonstrating woodblock printmaking techniques. Stop by and say hi and see the Museum's new exhibit of prints by Antonio Frasconi. Here is Annie's blog post on the same.

Ryohei Tanaka - Awesome

For his fans, and who isn't one, here's Ryohei Tanaka rockin' it at Rowan Morrison in Oakland, CA during his recent residency there this spring.  Awesome.

Get ready for more Ryohei papercuts at Cullom Gallery this summer.  Details soon to come.

Open house for Kristina at Sidereal Press Tonight

If you are in Seattle tonight, come down to Sidereal Press, just south in nearby Tukwilla, to celebrate Kristina Hagman's recent completion of the woodcut suite, 36 Views of Rainier, and wish her well as she prepares to move with her family to Los Angeles next month.  This is a special opportunity to see all 36 prints hanging at once - a beautiful sight to see.  

We will sorely miss Kristina in Seattle, but can't wait to see what drives up and down the California coast line inspire by way of new print series.  Word is Kristina is considering a landscape series based on views from Highway 1.
