Since moving back to LA I have been taking print-making classes at the Craft and Folk Art Museum (link: here) ; it has been so convenient for me, walking distance fom our place. Although the press is smaller than I have been used to, Holly Jerger the young woman running the series has been wonderfully helpful and supportive. She invited the class to submit work to the Los Angeles Printmaking Society ( link :here). The Society is presenting a non-juried show called “Give &Take” in which printmakers submit a series of 10 prints, limited to 8 by 10″ in size. One print will be retained for sale, four will be retained for future society sales and five go into portfolios for artists’ exchange.
Quite a nice way to build your print collection and engage with other printmakers.
My submission, The Scapegoat follows (it is not blurry as the image indicates-I have my printmaker pride after all!):
relief print on paper
8 by 10 inches
I will be dropping off the prints this evening, I’m looking forward to the opening event on the 18th at the LA Print Space at the Pacific Design Center (PDC).
