I am excited! I came across an ad on craigslist.com about an opening this coming weekend, and the art show includes work from a print-making professor that I had a class with about a year ago! Her work is amazing! I had her for a design class as well, she is very knowledgeable, an inspiring artist and a wonderful teacher!
I am not the best at drawing, so printmaking was quite a challenge for me in the drawing part of the class, but I did get an honorable mention for a linoleum reduction print in the 2008 Spring Art Show held at the college (see image below):
Here is the woodcut that I had worked on for several weeks. My hands ached from all that carving I had to do to this piece, but it was not as amazing as some of the other woodcuts that had been done in the class. One talented student had caught the eye of several professors for his piece and I think he sold a few prints and had a t-shirt made as well!
I am going to try and attend her show this coming Friday if I can....I need to work on setting up my schedule for next semester or I may end being forced to take another semester off! In addition, here is another link of some very talented print makers in my area:
Have a great evening!
