Juried Print Show at Spark Gallery

Late Monday morning, I raced over to Denver just in time to enter two of my woodcut prints in to the Juried Print Show at Spark Gallery. I am happy that my work was accepted in the show, and I will attend the reception tonight. The juror, Bud Shark, of Shark's Ink, is an acclaimed master printer from Lyons, Colorado. His company "has published prints and multiples by a distinguished group of artists since 1976. Shark's Ink has printed and published an eclectic and extensive body of prints, often challenging the assumptions and limitations of printmaking while collaborating with many of the most distinguished and innovative contemporary American artists working today."

Teaching Season

Open Studios is a big event for me every fall. This year, there was great attendance, but sales unfortunately were down by about half of previous years. I want to thank everyone that came out to visit my studio. There are many familiar faces I see year after year, and I sincerely appreciate the continued support and encouragement of my work.

Now that Open Studios has passed, I have moved on to "teaching season". As fall turns to winter, I focus on teaching woodcut classes. Last week I started teaching a woodcut workshop at the Art Students League of Denver. I will teach another workshop there
April 7 - May 12 2009

I will also be teaching one day workshops at Kozo Fine Art Materials in Denver,
November 22 - Woodcut basics
December 6 - Woodcut, color, and collage

After the new year, I will teach at my studio with the Lifelong Learning Program of the Boulder Valley School District,
February 11 - March 18 2009 - Woodcut Workshop

If you've ever wanted to try woodcut, sign up for a class!
