Artist Connection

It’s been roughly one week since I packed my supplies and readied myself for DSPS‘ May Artist Connection. The scheduling of this program coincided with the 9th Annual Print Show; so it seemed only fitting to demo one of the processes I favor, collagraph.

Having the opportunity to demo is such a gift; you’re exposing yourself and your practice to others. If things align just-so, the demo changes from one-sided instruction to something much more collaborative. Fortunately, Saturday’s program was the later.  The discussion was refreshing, and those in attendance were as invested in the print’s outcome as I was.

Having time to reflect, I feel humbled and hope those in attendance found the afternoon to be as rewarding as I did.

 

 

Urban Nights

I don’t often share a creative space with musicians and fire-dancers, but Urban Nights provided just that. It’s difficult to describe the atmosphere that develops when the masses gather to celebrate the talents and offerings of Dayton. I joined the Dayton Printmakers Cooperative, in demoing print processes for Street Art On SecondThe evening was filled with great people, performance, and music, a revival of the spirit.

Urban Nights

Urban Nights, May 2014

Urban Nights is upon us and with it comes an opportunity to highlight the artists and offerings of Dayton. In truth, this is a great way to reignite your interests and go on a date with your city. It was a long winter and we could all use some spark.

I will be joining the Dayton Printmakers Cooperative this evening, creating plates and pulling prints. We will be on Second Street, between Main and Jefferson, from 5 – 10:00 p.m.
