Make Monoprints in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado!

Create unique, one-of-a-kind monoprints by combining traditional and cutting-edge approaches in this one-week workshop from Aug. 6 - 10, 2018 at Anderson Ranch in Colorado. Workshop participants will use the Anderson Ranch Fabrication Lab and the Patton Print Shop to examine how laser-cut stencils, blocks and overlays can expand the possibilities of a painterly, playful and multilayered approach to making hand-pulled prints.

New Approaches to Monoprinting is taught by Lari Gibbons, an artist who explores new and traditional approaches to printmaking through collaborative, interdisciplinary projects. She is Professor at the University of North Texas and also directs P.R.I.N.T, a nonprofit fine art press. She received an M.F.A. from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.

For more information, see https://www.andersonranch.org .

UNT Printmaking students can now get course credit for approved workshops through ASTU 4302 / 5302: Printmaking Remote Research, which formalizes the off-campus experience into a series of projects that focus on demonstrating new technical skills, presenting awareness of contemporary practices, documentation of professional development, and participating in professional networking opportunities. Write gibbons@unt.edu for more details about the workshop or the Remote Research course.

The Contemporary Print

PrintAustin invites you to enter our 5th annual juried international exhibition “The Contemporary Print” to be held at O2 Gallery at Flatbed Press Headquarters during PrintAustin 2018.

The Contemporary Print exhibition is a survey of the traditions and the innovations of contemporary printmaking happening today. While non-traditional or digital output is accepted as a print element, submissions must utilize traditional print media as their primary technique including: Lithography, Relief, Intaglio, Silkscreen, Photo Polymer Plate and Monotype. Solely Digital and Photographic Prints are not eligible but feel free to contact us with any questions

Organizer: PRINTAUSTIN Collective
Venue: The Contemporary Print held at O2 Space @ Flatbed Press Headquarters Austin, Texas
January 20 –February 17, 2018
Opening Reception: January 20, 6-8pm

JUROR: This is the first time The Contemporary Print will be accepting international artists and we are excited to have our first juror from the United Kingdom. Dr. Paul Laidler is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) and Senior Lecturer in BA Illustration / MA Multidisciplinary Printmaking, University of the West England, Bristol, United Kingdom. The main focus of Paul’s academic activities stems from the close relationships that exist between technology, ideas and making in the graphic arts – particularly in the area of digitally-mediated print and its many offshoots. He contributes to critical discourse in print as a curator and arts writer, and is an associate editor for the Intellect Journal Drawing Research Theory and Practice. His research explores the impact of digital technology within the field of fine art printmaking, focusing on the advantages of using the traditional collaborative print studio model when generating and realising physical artefacts in the digital age. Over the years Paul has worked on print projects for artists such as Richard Hamilton, Lesley Dill, Joe Tilson, Gordon Cheung and Stanley Donwood.
