As promised, we have photographs from our most recent workshop, Prints for the passionate and Curious. On Sunday, March 6, Susan Goldman and artists from the GMU Printmakers Guild led a live discussion and demonstration of printmaking techniques at the OPG gallery. The artists gave step-by-step instruction to both traditional and innovative printing techniques: linocuts, digital printmaking, screen printing, and intaglio. We had a great bunch of people come out- art lovers of all ages- to learn and talk one-on-one with our very talented and very cool DC artists. The OPG gallery walls were covered with the GMU Printmakers Guild’s newest works, and some artists even brought their working matrices and proofs to show us an “inside look” at their creative process. Freelance photographer and DC native, Francis Tatem, captured some great shots of the event. Below are some of our favorites:
Thanks again to Susan Goldman, Patrick Sargent, Meaghan Busch, Marti Patchell, Josh McGuin, and Erwin Thamm for giving us a glimpse into their printmaking world! And thanks to Francis Tatem for sharing his images with us.
