While most of us got snowed in for the first few days of the month, we're finally all back in the studio! On Saturday, we saw some cool work being made by Margaret Buchen and others. CPC instructor Alan Lerner worked with private student Paul Newmann in producing his first screen print (see below).
Margaret was making a monotype by painting directly on the mesh of a screen (pictured above), which I had seen a few times before, but not with this much "painterly" detail. The result of this process is similar to a painted image, but slightly removed and flattened- which is what I liked the most about the final product.
Deborah has been working on an etching (pictured below with her fancy headgear from American Science and Surplus!).
In other news, we have a new show in the works called "Fresh off the Press", featuring new work by new CPC artists, opening March 5th. I finished screenprinting posters for the event last night, which you will see around town soon- in 2 colors!
Stay tuned for more info on our next show!
