Whiteaker Printmakers is hosting another Social Pressure event on Friday, September 30, at 6:30 PM, during the Whiteaker Last Friday Art Walk. We'll explore linocut printmaking -- a simple technique of printing from a linoleum plate hand-carved with specialized cutting tools. Everyone is welcome; no experience necessary. It's $10 to participate (all tools and materials provided), or free if you just want to hang out, watch, and be social.
In the second of the occasional Wednesday evening Print Talk sessions, Mika Aono Boyd explains aquatint, sugar lift, soap ground and spit bite etching techniques. These no-pressure, no-prerequisite talks at Whiteaker Printmakers offer informative demonstrations and discussions of a variety of printmaking techniques in a fun and relaxed setting.
“Pressing Matters, 2016,” Whiteaker Printmakers' first juried printmaking exhibition, opens August 2 at the Emerald Art Center in neighboring Springfield, Oregon. All traditional (hand-pulled) printmaking techniques are eligible for entry. Our juror is Karen Kunc, of Constellation Studios and the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. The exhibition runs August 2 through September 2.
