SGCI 2019 in north Texas

SGCI 2019 Call for Proposals is now open at sgci2019.org . The first round of proposals is due 20 July, 2018.

#SGCI2019 will take place March 6 – 9, 2019 in Dallas, Texas! The conference theme is Texchange.

Texchange engages the capacity of printmaking to act as an agent of transformation in its practices within the field, contributions to other art media, and larger cultural roles. Prints are celebrated for the ways in which they spread images, information, ideas, and political views. Through shared spaces and collaborations, printmakers influence other artists, innovators, and disciplines. With printmaking, we create change together. 

Please share widely!

Thank you Halee Hamm

P.R.I.N.T Press thanks Halee Hamm for serving as an intern in spring 2018. Halee is in her Senior year and is a Printmaking major. Here she writes about her role in this semester's projects:  

In the spring of 2018 I had the privilege of working as an intern at P.R.I.N.T Press. It's not every day that an aspiring printmaker can walk into a massive and pristine printmaking studio with crisp white walls, housing countless presses, tools and endless supplies. Let's be honest, it's a dream facility; begging to be filled with passionate, thoughtful, and hardworking artists that can enrich the already overflowing creative atmosphere. In recent years P.R.I.N.T Press has hosted several visiting artists including Linda Ridgway, Kiki Smith, and Jeff Dell. . . .

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.
